Hard oscilations

    Consider the structure illustrated above,which consists of two arms of length l and negligible mass, forming an inverted V with a fixed angle, and a body of mass m at the apex. The structure oscillates between two extreme positions represented in gray, with zero speed at these positions. The oscillations begin at the left.Let to be the moment when the intermediate position is reached for the first time and let T be the time when the oscillations stop.

    Considering that the structure doesn't slide determine T-to.

    Please help, this is very hard.
