Help with floppy center vent

I recently replaced the center vent (nozzle?) on my 924s and was about to consign the old one to the junk pile when I thought I should at least try to fix it.



The issue is classic: the vents would rather flop around than stay in one place. I thought I might try a little moleskin to get the needed friction but wondered if there isn't a better way.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

The pins that the vents hinge on are accessible on the sides, I would try intentionally impeding it with something like contact cement or silicone. I did something similar to my ashtray door, which would constantly chatter on the highway, and it did the job perfectly.
