how to adjust jib leads on toe rail

I sail a Mariner 28 and I have to put the jib leads on the toe rail in order to get the desired sail shape.

I use snatch blocks on the toe rail. This is a pain to adjust. I was in strong winds yesterday and really needed to adjust these block back further but there is no easy way to do this while the sail is under load.

Any one in a similar situation who got more creative and solved this issue?
