It's supposed to be a friction fit, it's the auto-centering mechanism for leleu hubs.

That's loose, but maybe would be fine.

Drags like crazy on my hubs. Are they both just fucked? Should ive just got a new one?

I bought the unpainted one used to stop my brakes dragging. The exact same thing is happening to this plate though. That plate is just very loose. Would a new one move like that or be locked down?

More than likely your issue is not the plate. It swivels like that to center itself and apply even pressure to both pads.

If you wanted to make it move less, you could take a punch and stake down the corners of that rounded rivet on the cover, but it still needs to move.

Its 100% the springs dragging on the hub.

brake shoe springs are over extended, the pivot slides are worn.
