Form 2 Build platform plastic end cap blows off during print

Anyone else have this happen? This is my second build platform to have an end cap blow-out. I run seven Form 2 machines in production with maybe a dozen platforms in constant circulation, so they see a lot of use. The blow out when it happens is LOUD. Once it blew out during a print and jammed the wiper mech. That ended the print quickly. Luckily this one happened while the machine was idle.

What’s the point of these end caps anyway? Wonder if I could run with them removed?
