vintage cone-shaped interior lights

I apologize in advance for posting this question because I know it has been asked before, but I simply cannot find it in the archives.
All four dual cone-shaped lights in my ’67 TW have pulled out of the sockets on the twin bases. How do I get them back in and keep them there? Brute force doesn’t work. Please somebody point me to a thread or tell me how to fix them before I grab a hacksaw and commit unspeakable acts on these hard-to-find originals.
The photo shows them in the “in” position but they won’t stay there, they just keep popping out when I adjust them.

Me too!

I too need to find a way to keep these round swivel balls in their sockets. Please take pity on Rog and I and post how you fixed this problem. I heard from another member that there was a fix here sometime back or that someone told him the way to fix these lamps. It involved two pins and a spring but he was unable to point me to who provided the fix info or exactly the procedure to rebuild these reading lamps. Ed
