Unhappy Securing 50 ft Channel Master Antenna Mast

I need some suggestions. Due to high winds, the L-shaped screw nuts are not holding the mast sections. My rotor power line and coax were pulled from the turn of the top mast, and I moved it back to get some more slack. Luckily the coax provides a signal, but I will have to reconnect the power line in the rotor box. Is there any type of different clamp with a bolt to secure my sections?

I use muffler clamps....Or in high wind areas I use a tek screw in each section, they are self drilling, a #12 x 3/4 inch works great

My older masts have a 1/4" hole on both sides a short ways down from the top and the other end of each mast has a notch180 degrees across the bottom so you can insert a bolt or rod through the hole while the above mast is raised slightly then drop it down and place the notch on the bolt or rod.

That prevents any rotation of the mast during use.

I never rely on those L-shaped screw nuts after a while they rust or you tighten them so much it dents the mast and you cannot disassemble it.
