Lazy Jacks

My boat has lazy jacks, and while I like the concept I am not happy with how they work. With only two lines along side of the sail a lot of it spills out between them. They appear to have been modified, some line is real old and some is newer. The newer lines are larger and it doesn't appear to me there is any benefit to larger lines. I'd like to add an additional line to hold the sail in better. Finally, I need a new sail cover, and I'd like to have one made to fit aroud the lazy jacks and just eliminate the topping lift.

Has anyone seen a lazy jack installation they were particularly impressed with?
