Core 2 Duo E6600 Heatsink

I pulled off my heatsink for the first time in three years to re-apply thermal compound.

On the bottom of the rotating "pins" that screw into the motherboard, there are 2 tiny plastic clips opposite of each other.
On two of the pins, there's only 1 plastic clip (other is broke off).

Does this render the heatsink useless?
