Red face Hood Prop keeps coming out of place...

Does anyone else have this issue? When you close your hood your hood rod/prop comes out of its place? This happens to me like 60% of the time and its so frustrating because you have to re-pop the hood, secure the hood prop again and hope it dont pop out again...

I know this is a ridiculous post but I honestly dont care lol. Anyone have this issue or any fixes for it? I bought a hood prop clip from autozone and literally gorilla glued it down and tried double sided tape and it just rips right off.... and I really dont wanna drill it in either

Its a little problem to have but its so dang annoying!

Mine doesn’t even look like it ever had one? There’s no area under the hood by the prop that looks like there was one ever installed. So I assumed none of the speeds have them? Or just mine don’t lol
