Missing parts on light fixture

I recently bought another place and noticed the hanging lights from the ceiling was missing a retainer that support the globes and is held by the set screws. Now the light bulbs is supporting the weight of the globe and I know that is bad. Is there a way to tell the manufacturer and model number or suggestions on how to fix? I attached some images to help explain.

Welcome to the forums.

Who is that man in the mirror....

I see what you want to do. When you hold the globe up it makes for a nice looking fixture.
Typically there is a flange molded into the globe and that flange is what the three set screws hold.
I have a feeling that globe didn't come with that fixture.
Your globe is what is called "neckless".

As far as I know there is no easy way to do it. In the links below are what you are trying to do and maybe you can get ideas.

neckless adapters
neckless ball shade holder
globe pendant lights
