Fan problems

I have a 2011 rockwood 8281ss with a ceiling fan and the light covers or globes keep falling off. Have not had one break yet. Does anyone else have this problem? How to remedy this problem? Thinking of looking for plastic ones or just not putting them back at all.

Ok, I found one on line that shows the ceiling fan.
Does it use the two spring metal tabs to hold the globes on?
If so, maybe you can bend them a little to increase the tension.
If they use the three screws like a residential model then mabe some lock-tite on the threads but then if you have to remove them........???????

It's so hard to be helpful here without a good closeup view.
Can you post some pictures of them?

No globes on mine either; but I have had them come lose on the bedroom fan. The globe retention screws strip out and will not properly tighten.
