help. Live well keeps draining out

First season with my new 04 dauntless 180. The stern live well has the plunger pole device but the problem is it seem to get itself knocked loose. I assume its the combination of being full of water and the wave action when you run. Of course everything drains out. Not good when you have it full of $2 eels and the day is cut short.
Its really a poory executed design. My buddy's boat has the same type system but the plunger has about a 3 inch boot that holds real firm. Dauntless drain does a quick bend so there is no room to extend the boot.
Any ideas to tighten this thing up? Who makes the thing?

Same with my old Conquest. I chunked the plastic standpipe into a lathe and turned it down to fit snugly into the drain hole. BillS
