You mean the deflector on the chute - or the actual chute itself? The deflector usually has a wing nut on one side to clamp it down in the position you want. Check that there are washers on either side of it do you get maximum holding area and dont' be afraid to tighten it up a bunch. On the chute itself you may need to look at the adjuster arm and see if you can take some of the slack/slop out if it. you can pu the eyelet at an angle that creates more friction to hold it if the rubber is to old/stiff. Likewise you could maybe do something on the chute assembly to put more tension on it .....

If you can find a rubber grommet that will fit the eyelet you might be able to get something that will help hold it a bit better. That type of drive is hard to keep in place though...... it's a lot of weight and the vibrations tend to make them walk

I had one like thAt, i attached a weight to the bottom shaft between the spring and gear at the shute base. Making it long enough to keep the shute from turning, but wounldnt notice when using the crank. I forget what materials i used. Maybe hoseclamped a bolt with washers on it...

you can wrap a bungy cord around the shaft a couple of times and tie it off to create some resistance. just don't make it too tight.
