Vector Boson Scattering (VBS) processes are regarded as the best lab to study the $VVVV$ quartic couplings, where $V = W, Z$. Such studies are carried in the framework of Effective Field Theories (EFT), but the EFT formalism is often not used in a fully consistent way. We discuss the limitations of the EFT approach to describe New Physics effects in VBS data. We argue that the "clipping" technique is the most theory-motivated way to do data analysis in the EFT language and discuss first results from an analysis of CMS Run 2 data on the $WZ$ and same-sign $WW$ process, with and without "clipping" implemented.
