If I understand your description of the problem correctly, it sounds
like your mast is slipping in the clamps on the ortor. You need a pin
inserted through the clamp plates and through, or at least into, the
mast to prevent slippage. I use a self tapping 1/4" stainless screw
which I screw into a predrilled hole in the clamping plate and mast.
Hope this info helps.
