I'm not sure if this is just an Australian thing with the heat we can experience during the summer weakening the plastic or if this affects the majority of TJ's.
As you can see the plastic trim bracket tends to snap with any movement of the visor.

Installation took all of 15 minutes, but that includes making a cup of tea and generally faffing about.
Literally a case of unscrewing the broken bracket, swapping the spring on to the new one and installing a new retaining ring.
