Yeah, I know what you mean. Just replaced mine recently.

Used 3M Epoxy to attach to carpet, along with the two (2) push pins into the bracket.

Your problem might be with the support bracket being loose. The two (2) studs that locate the top of the bracket, actually come up through two (2) cut-out notches (not holes in the bracket). The nuts on top of the bracket are composite (not metal) which could be loose.

I could see how if someone used enough force on the dead pedal to reposition themselves in the seat, the bracket may deform and become loose on the top, along with possibly blowing out the lumbar support of the seat at the same time. Not the greatest engineering achievement.
