Default Ceramic guides

So my question is why do ceramic guides pop out, I have had 2 or 3 rods(quality name) have the guides come loose. Rods are in rod holders on boat ,through transport in secured rod holders and after washing go into rod holders in my office. I understand rod tips are more prevalent and subjected to use and abuse . It should be noted that a hook never goes into a guide in fear of compromising the ceramic guide, but attached to guide frame arm or snap release on conventional. Rods are 4 years old , and again handled with care. I was told guides are pressed into place, however direct correlation to summer and heat exposure may be the cause. Any thoughts?
