Looked at one on web.
I am thinking that the nut that allows the arms to pivot is hitting the storge plate. When you push down with extra force the plate defects slightly. Slight adjustment with hammer may correct issue.

I would spray some WD-40 on pivot and it should loosen up.

Sounds like the stud that latches into the slot is a little bent and scrubbing the edge of the slot. If it cannot be straightened then a new one is needed. I would mark the point of contact and try hitting it with a hammer to see if that will correct the problem. I have the same Blue Ox Aladdin 10,000 lb. bar.
