I disagree with the thin plastic description. Harken is generally known for superior products. It appears yours is not installed correctly if you keep having the same problem

As far as the jam. And it happens to all furlers at some time. Which is easier to correct and fix....an open body drum or one which is closed
Raising it up will make the problem worse the top of the drum hits on the bow pulpit . its a Colgate 26 design flaw
