Trying to put the pendulum on my Trend Grandfather Clock

Trend Clock circ. 1960's
Our pendulum came off our clock and so did the piece of metal that hangs down to hold the pendulum in place.
We're having difficulty putting it back where it needs to be.
The metal piece in question hangs from the stainless steal pin and connects on the other end to the pendulum. It's the bright square piece in the pic.
Below the stainless part is a "L" shaped part and the bottom of this "L" are 2 tongs and we believe that the metal pendulum holder is supposed to somehow connect to the "L" also; as this "L" should move back and forth with the pendulum so that all the gears in the movement will turn.
You can see part of the "L" just below the most forward horizontal brass rod at the lower part of the pic.
We can't seem to figure out how to put this back in. Can anyone out there tell us how? Enclosed are 4 pics.
