Default How to fix interior room trim from popping out

Have any of you ever had an issue where the center interior room trim keeps popping out in hot weather? I thought of buying a new trim piece but I also thought that the same thing would happen... because its plastic and most plastics will warp in high temperature, which is what causes this in the first place. Anyway here is my fix for that:
EDIT: I also bent the 90 degree joins further outward to push the plastic clips even further into place when popping the piece back into the car

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
