In addition to the suggestion about the washer (which is a great suggestion) also make sure the pin with the plastic nut (that you tighten or loosen) is in the right place within the elongated opening. It is in the wrong position in several of your photos. It should be in the outer-most position within the area where it can slide back and forth.

If the fan "head" is level (air flowing straight forward) you can have the fan in a stationary position without too much worry. However, if the head it pointed upward, the oscillator mechanism is made so that you can tighten it in the stationary position so the head doesn't flop to one side.

What I'm trying to say is the stationary versus oscillating operation is not just a matter of "tighten and loosen," but also the position in the elongated slot when you tighten it.

If someone else reads this and can explain it more clearly, please do! LOL
