Wiper Blade Replacement on a 2013 Explorer

I bought some Winter Blades for my wife's 2013 Explorer. Took them home only to realize they have some oddball mounting clips and the Aanco Winter Blades I purchased do not look like they will work. WTF? Do I need to purchase new blades from the dealership or am I missing something? The OEM blades seem to have a molded clip that attaches to the wiper arm. The new blades have nothing similar in the package. Please help me figure this out. Thanks, Jim

Not winter blades (not much need for them in FL), but I did replace the ones on my 2012 explorer with Trico brand blades I got from Amazon. No crazy adapter required. Just clipped on like the original equipment ones.
