Red face NEW Headlamps keeps breaking

1993, 240, I replaced all the plastic lens all around the vehicle. ($700 worth)

The front headlamps keeps breaking and dropping down. There are THREE plastic gray sockets with pin clips on the end of the lens/reflector unit. The black mounting bracket has three brass adjusting bolts that insert into the plastic gray sockets. After installing this onto the front frame TWO gray plastic sockets break away from the brass bolts and the headlamp drops down.

The Cal. Dealer where I bought the lamps say I need to adjust the hood.(two black rubber like screws) I did and the second set of headlamps have broke, just ONE plastic gray adjusting socket.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?
