Grind a groove into it and use a screwdriver

You need to screw the bolt in a bit and grind / deburr right at the clip groove area. It won’t slide through the bore. You may be able to tap and install a heli coil and install a new slider bolt.
Replace the clip as well. You are not the first one

Hope this helps

I'm not going to lie... I've had the same thing happen. I used red thread lock and put the pin back in. Then I put on the little hitch pin clip and never had an issue.
