Unfortunately, it only temporarily worked. Guess I'll have to find a solution that'll slip more permanently but I can definitely confirm that that is the issue.

You've already helped tremendously but am wondering if you have any suggestions as to what substance I should use to provide constant lubrication.

Inside the cue lever is silicone damping fluid. It sounds like the seal that contains the silicone fluid has failed and is leaking out.

I'm sure you're right but what's the solution? From the looks of it, the little bit of silicone fluid which rests on top is causing the metal clip to temporarily stick mildly to the base which I feel whenever I use the cue lever.

The solution to your problem is to order the Jelco replacement queing device from Audio Sensibility. Mine was leaking out the top also. The Jelco is working flawlessly.

Even the Jelco has a similar problem -- it leaks from the bottom. However, its MTBF is much longer - Mine lasted nearly 9 years and it is working again flawlessly after I relubed it.

If you read the thread, you'll see I already have the Jelco.

Nobody has a suggestion? Or is the only fix to buy yet another part?

Suggestions to resolve this were made a few posts back. You need to service the cueing device as indicated in the prior posts.

Follow this guidance
