I would remove the one on the PS2 port as it will get in the way, as for the Ethernet ports i'm not sure, cause i've never seen those things before. Someone else should know about that part

I have bent them inward slightly then eased them onto the port tops. The end result is a small tab placing a minute amount of pressure on the top of the ports. I just assumed that was what they were for. They don't look like production tabs (like plastic models), so I doubt they are left ver from the moulding process.

Just guessing.

I just noticed the smaller tabs and remembered that I left them on, and I do not have any issues with plugging peripherals in. Again, slight pressure against the face of the port.
