This is because people "lever" the tip holder off the column.

It causes more problems than just a break, it first bends the pins
so that there is not a solid connection between the tip holder and
the column, ruining the resolution for weeks before the pin eventually
gets broken off. 

Push the tip holder straight on and ease it straight off - don't 
lever or rock it to get it off.
