Looks like the white plastic part has deteriorated (hardened up) so it's flaking apart as it wiggles instead of just clicking in there tight.

If they work OK otherwise, I'd save the expense & PITA of replacement by loosening that base a bit so I could get a couple LARGE Zip Ties under it, then tighten them around the cables where they are mounted. (then tighten it back down again)

That should keep it in place until it gives up completely at least!
