murphy bed breakage

I built a murphy bed for my brother in law 5 years ago using plans from Plans Now. The bed has broken 3 times in the same area. The wood surrounding the metal pin that the footboard pivots on blows out. I think it's from being lowered too aggressively, but not sure. Anybody have similar issue?

You kinda need to give us more info. Pictures would help as well as what kind of wood did you use.
