Question about Powerheads and snails/fish

So I have a question about my powerheads specifically. I have two korallia 3s and a maxi jet 1200. I have flow directors/channelers on the korallias. I think it would help greatly to broaden the flow of the korallias by removing the director pieces I put on. I at least would like to try but I dont want snails or whatever else getting in the powerheads. Anyone ever had a problem. I notice in pics that others have the stock korallias with no flow diverter on them. What are your thoughts.

I don't have flow diverters and my snails/urchins don't get stuck on them or harmed by them.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

My snails have crawled everywhere there is to crawl on a Koralia (input and output) and never had any issues.

I have never had a problem with a snail getting caught in my powerhead.
