You can use gutter netting to put over those spots that are bare. But, thats kinda weird. I have a 240g tank with no lids at all, and the snails just come to the lip of the water and go back.

In my 32g tank which is open topped, the snails go all the way up to the top and I have seen one on the rim but it went back in. Most of them go up the glass and then just drop off back into the tank when they reach air!
