got my new antenna today but...

when i opened the box some of the reflectors were bent, i got those back in their place. one of the elements has started to come away from the antenna itself. looks like it got bent somehow and only part of it is still connected. anything that i could secure it with so when i install the antenna the wind will not rip it off?. would it hurt the antennas performance? its a winegard hd 9032.

I would make a claim with either the shipper or the vendor. Field repair is not likely to hold up for as many years as you should expect the antenna to last.
