I unlaced and reinstalled right side tramp after it pulled 1/2 way out of the track. After reinstalling and standing on it carefully, it promptly pulled all the way out. The bolt rope has flattened. Any options other than a trip to the sail shop for a new bolt rope?

It sounds to me like maybe the track needs replacing?

I presently use the Tren Tec clamps. I also have used stainless screws down the center of the rope to make it round again and prevent flattening.
