argh, hagen ladder bracket broke

The bottom bracket that holds the bottom suction cup on my Hagen ladder broke off when I was cleaning it... I was doing something that in hind sight was really dumb... but seemed to make sense at the time. Anyhow, now the Co2 bubbles will start up the ladder, & then about the 2nd "rung" they just slip off and head to the surface. I moved my HOB filter over near it, so the intake is grabbing some of the bubbles, & spitting them back into the water.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Should I just run the co2 into the hob intake? This sucks, I just got the thing (used) and I cant return it, & I need Co2!

Could you glue the broken part back on? They make a general ABS/PVC cement approved for use in drinking water systems that might work.

No, it broke into a couple of different pieces, & I was unable to locate the piece I would need to make it work again. :/

I'd just buy another one, they're less than $10.00.
