That's what I assumed you meant. I've seen that many times. You must have jackknifed the rig sufficiently to bottom out the bar-portion within the clamping portion. Once that happens, the unit is like a solid bar of steel. Continue the jackknife, and all of the force goes right into that plate, bending it.
