Question about KitchenAid KHM3 Classic Hand Mixer
The beater with the extra collar will not lock into place, it falls out before I even get it into the batter. Can the "collar-grip" be replaced? Where would I get such a thing? What is the real name for it?
You need a new gear set. Hard to find however.

I fixed mine (my wife's). Kitchenaid 3-Speed Hand Mixer KHM3WH. Here's how I did it.
This is a pretty old mixer. My wife bought it at a thrift store for $1. She brought it home, we found the beaters and whisk beaters on eBay. Paid $34.00 for both sets of beaters, but when we received them we found they would not stay in the mixer. Oh we also bought the alternative/replacement beaters from Sears, parts online. I don't think those will work with my fix. However with some $0.92 rubber washers from Lowe's and a heavy duty paperclip I fixed the mixer, and it works flawlessly. Maybe some stainless steel wire would be a better, more permanent fix.

Tips for a great answer:
To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.
2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.
