I just encountered the same problem. Am trying to get a new keeper from teknatool. I did grind down the legs of the current keeper so it fits lower into the slot and enough catches the groove in the turning knob. Seems to be holding for now. The groove on my turning knob got rounded on the edge toward the headstock.
