I make the pins look like this:  
See the squiggles on the left ends of the pins?  
Make the squiggles with a small needle nose, then put them in the sockets. Tug a little on them, if they slip out easily, squiggel them a little more till they feel tight. I have never had anything fall out, and I travel a lot with my mucho-socket pedals.  
I'm with JD.
