Forgot about that. One of mine broke off too. It appears to be fine with just the one that came out holding it in place.
You might want to soak the other screw with Liquid Wrench or equivalent. You may also want to replace the original screw with stainless to cut down on the corrosion that locks the screws into the base.
Be careful in the heat too. It was a record 105 here in Little Rock today, and forecast to be 107 (real temps, not heat indexes) tomorrow.
