The front heat shield on my Chieftain Limited is loose and vibrates up the header pipe as it moves, decoupling from the lower heat shield exposing a small gap. I've tried to reset it in place, but it keeps moving. Anyway to tighten them down?

Narrow band clamp, not a worm drive hose clamp-no nut or screw to tighten

You’ll have to replace the clamps with worm drive clamps or get new crimp on clamps and the crimping tool.

Ya I'm in the shop Manuel and not specifying any worm drive clamp I'm wondering if the factory installed them as a permanent band if that is the case maybe one broke,might have to remove exhaust and do a little spot weld, me I would install a new header, time for upgrade brother!

My 2017 Springfield had worm clamps on all shields except the short shield on the rear cylinder. The permanent bands on that shield got a little loose and allowed for some slippage. Just broke out the Dremel tool with a cutting wheel and removed the two fixed clamps and replaced them with narrow width worm clamps. Sounds like you might have the same problem.
