pin comes off 85033C 3.5mm open standard

I have two 85033C 3.5mm cal kits. On both, one of the open standard's pin comes off the clear plastic thing. Is there a recommended adhesive to fix this? I've been hesitant to try anything. I'm as careful as I can be with my cal kits, but I have to use needle nose pliers to take the standard pin off, or else the plastic stick will just pull out of the metal pin.

The good news is that the standards are ok. I have 3 cal kits: 2 85033C and 1 85033D. If I cal with one set of standards, the others measure to their definitions. So I've been hesitant to try to fix the loose pins. But it is a pain, and I'm always afraid that I'm going to damage the pins with the pliers - although I am careful.
