Minelab Pro-Swing 45 question

I have recently purchchased the Minelab Pro-Swing 45 with the stiffing bar to transfer the weight from the shoulder to the lower back.

On a recent this stiffing bar fell out and I didn't notice it was gone until I got back to my car. Fortunately this was a small test hunt, so found it easily by retracing my tracks.
Anyone figured a good way to keep this from happening. I am thinking of tying the stiffing rod to the harness with some fishing line. Any better suggestions?

I have used duck tape where the two shafts come together.

I am not sure that will help. mine fell out of the harness slots but did not come apart and the joint.

Reverse duct tape on it and jam it in . sube
Ah, now I see what you mean. I never would have thought of that. Thanks a Lot.

I got mine exactly as I wanted it, put epoxy on the ball joint of the strut and snapped it in, which keeps it in the socket and keeps the end from turning and unwinding itself.

What? Snapped???? I guess I should read my directions more carefully. I was not pushing it in hard enough. I guess you all now think I am rather slow on the uptake. Man I would never make it as a detectorist without these forums. I am NOT joking about that. Just imagine trying to learn the Nox 800 as a newbie without help.
