The only times I have ever broken an element is when I'm changing a pot. I've done it more than once.
When we finished our first Moly I had a little shot of energy and built a small wood cart on wheels. It's positioned next to the furnace at pot change and stores the elements vertically just like they are in the furnace and in the same sequence. It's been pretty handy.
