C-Stand ankle broken

So pretty much one day as I was mounting a strobe on my  cstand i realized that it wouldnt tighten anymore. Once you put the thin bar thats holding the strobe through the ankle, as im twisting to tighten it up, it just keeps rotating.

The shark teeth part is the one thats supposed to be stuck in place but it just keeps rolling. There was no crack, nothing fell off etc it simply just stopped doing what its supposed to be doing. My question is, am I missing something because this should seem like an easy fix but I cant figure out why all of a sudden it has no traction. I called the local shop and they do have a replacement for me for $20 which is fine but still i wanted to see is this a common problem and if i can fix it myself, why not Thanks in advance!
