For either the ‘ratcheting gear’ or ‘clutch plate’ type I would expect that what has changed is that the sharp edges that actually grip the pipe or bar have dulled over the years. I would suggest sharpening them up with a file and see if it helps and how long. Note that this is not written from experience in fixing this issue, just sharing some thoughts.
