I have had a lot of them do that over the years, so check that first. I tend to replace one every couple of months. One day I will actually do them all together, but that would be "getting around to it"! Never enough time anyway.
When you buy new slugs, you can also get some flat plastic shackles that fasten with a small stainless steel
screw. Cut the webbing off and use these.
