Looks like the locking holes and slot in the center plate is rather worn. Replace it and probably the pin. If parts
are unavailable, it shouldn't be to hard to manufacturer one yourself out of some hard alloy of aluminum
plate, using the original as a pattern. You could also make one that would last longer out of stainless, but unless you have a friend with a machine shop and a source of ss scrap, that would probably cost more than replacing the whole mount...
Other than that you might be able to jury-rig something, but it would probably wind
up being more of a pain in the ass to deploy, and then jump out of place just when you needed it most...
