proper mast step at the foot of the mast with a pin for and aft to prevent movement of the foot of the mast.

I just happen to have a nice photo on the web already which shows clearly the mast step (black thing) and the its pin (screw):

The pin only prevents the mast foot from sliding aft. Forestay and/or jib luff wire tension is supposed to keep it from sliding forward, though it’s not that simple (at least in my experience).

Best wishes,
Mato
