I've got a cheap Tamron 70-210 with broken "dog ears." The three protrusions on the lens that locks into your camera body. Some Wolf Camera dude mentioned that's what they were called.

The lens was attached to a Nikon FG that fell and the dog ears cracked off.

Is there a way to fix these? I'm assuming this issue can affect any lens for that matter and not just Tamron specific. It seems like such a waste, the lens is otherwise fine.
