My clarinet is set up the same way, and I also had this problem of
clicking because everything fell out. The solution I found was, as you
suggest, tape. I cut a small piece of black electrical tape, just long
enough to wrap around the metal tenon, and then it's completely silent,
and unlikely to fall out (I've only had one start coming out, and that's
only because I didn't put it on right). It is a bit tricky to install
though, and doesn't always stay if you take the key off, but it certainly
works well unless you frequently remove the keys!
