K-1 rods for screen came off tracks

So my friend accidentally knocked my K-1 with 60-250 attached off a picnic table, which bounced off the seat on to the ground. Nothing internally appears to have impacted the body or the lens but three of the rods for the articulating screen came out of their tracks. I'm surprised they came out due to how durable they are but I'm wondering if there is a specific way to get them back in their tracks. My concern is that it may require a lot of force to get back in but wanted to check with you guys to see if there is an easier solution before I try to force them and cause any further damaged. Attached is a photo in case I haven't described the problem very well.

I appreciate any help anyone can provide. Also, if needed, is there anyone that might be able to repair this, for a fee (on my friend's dime), of course....DCShooter??

I tried searching but not sure the appropriate term to use for those rods, which may prevent me from finding results.
