My GPU Clip Lock Fell off

I was trying to change my gpu and I just realized that it doesn't lock to anything but the screws, is the motherboard still useable?

Dont forget to mark as solution if your question is answered

Note: My advice is amateur help/beginner troubleshooting, someone else can probably troubleshoot way better than me.

Yea it's fine, it won't just fall out or anything. I've got a few older boards that are missing their clips. All of them work just fine.

 

It might unseat a bit if you carry it around to a LAN or something and it gets bumped around a bit, but just be sure to push back in the graphics card in that case.

I honestly wish mine would fall off, its such a PITA trying to reach it with modern GPUs being so long and wide.
