Snap to point

I've been trying to make a snapping system, so a number of empty gameObjects are defined 'ClippingPoints' and are tagged thus. I've been trying to make snapping work with this script, however, it's not working well - objects are snapping to really weird places. Here is the part where I define and place objects.

 function Place (){
     clippingPoints = GameObject.FindGameObjectsWithTag("ClippingPoint");
     var position = transform.position;
      var distance = Mathf.Infinity;  
      var closest : GameObject; 
     for (var go : GameObject in clippingPoints) { 
     var diff = (go.transform.position - position);
     var curDistance = diff.sqrMagnitude; 
 if (curDistance < distance) { 
 closest = go; 
 distance = curDistance; 
 if(distance < 1 ){
 if(snapping == true){
 newPart.position = closest.transform.position;
 print (closest.transform.position);
 currentPart = false;

I think the code could be a bit more complete but I suspect the problem is related to you getting the information from transform.position, altering newPart.transform and then setting newPart.position (but if newPart is a transform, why did you call newPart.transform?)
