Unplugged rear brake pads are loose

The Brembo OEM rear pads have those “claws” on the back to fix the pads on the caliper. However UP’s street & track rear pads’ back are totally flat. So they are loosely sit inside the caliper and free to move around.

The driving seems ok on the street. But when I turning in a quiet garage I can hear something bouncing back and forth in my rear. I’m not sure why the design is like this and whether should I bring them to the track. @UnpluggedP

My UP’s are fine, no noise whatsoever. But UP provided a shim wrap that winds around the “ears” of the outer rear pads. Did UP send you the shim wrap?
