Securing pump in bracket

I have a Stream 6105 pump that doesn't want to stay pointing in one direction. As the pump pulses, or possibly when a fish nudges it, it ends up pointing in a random direction. Do you have any suggestions on how to more securely hold the pump in a fixed position within its bracket?

You can squeeze the c clip together to hold the pump in place. The plastic is Very strong so you shouldn’t have any problems holding the pump

As Seeady66 said, it tends to work better if you soak it in hot water or run a hair dryer over it, squeeze it and let it cool by running under cold water while squeezing it.
