Hi that device is a weight that would retract your pull out back into position is designed to be loose and float on the hose so the weight always stays at the does need two screws back in it to hold it to the hose...........they probably fell out and maybe you can find them on the bottom of the would be good the use the exact ones or new of the same type and length
