Default misplaced eggs

Happy Easter all,
My breeding pair of Oelemaries lately have laid several clutches of eggs ,which is good, however the eggs have either been laid on or have migrated to the sidewall of the coco hut in either case the clutch is usually lost. Instead of a petri dish I have been using solo cup lids but I think that is really not a factor in all of this. I have been thinking it is most likely due to the moisture content in the lid allowing the eggs to slide ,which could be the other issue, purhaps the lid is out of level, in which I tried to rectify I hate repeating words but which does no good for they fall askew anyways .So not to rattle off forever , has anyone had this happen. And what have you tried to stem any repeats.

If the bottom edges of the coco hut are resting inside of the lid, you might want to try using a smaller lid that has a higher rim.

You're breeding tincs, you're going to have to raise the tads yourself, why not just pull the eggs before they slide?

That is what I do .Unfortunately this last clutch slid within 12 hours of being laid so it was just to soon to pull them. I will try different lid & coco hut combo and see if that get a different result.
