Pop up head turns around when system turns off

Hello all!
I have a pop up head that sprays 180 degrees. When the system shuts off and the tube goes back into the ground, the tube completely flips around in the other direction. So I get a nice hot spot on my lawn and my driveway gets watered. I can walk out there and manually turn the tube head around but it flips around again once the zone is done... I really don't feel like going out in the middle of the night to flip it every time the system runs :)

Any suggestions? Or should I just get a new head? Thank you so much in advance.

The ratcheting mechanism's worn out.
You'll need to replace the sprinklers.

I figured something was broken. Thanks for your help!
