Foresail downhaul binding

I have hank-on foresails. I have tried rigging a downhaul line, but, have had trouble with the hanks jamming. Seems when the sail is pulled from the tack (not using the downhaul), everything slides down. If the hanks are pulled from the head (using the downhaul) they get all jammed up. I have tried connecting the downhaul to the top, second and third hank, no luck. I have tried lacing the downhaul through all the hanks, and just a few, no luck. Any other ideas?
