That's why i'd recommend using a rubber band as safety around the two holding them.

You could probably finagle a solution using zip ties as well.

ya, I have a rubber band holding the fans on my GPU heatsink, however I don't think there is anything he can use an elastic band on. using a couple zapstraps through the screw holes would probably be a good idea.
