Twin sheet lead blocks need rubber stand up?
I've tried to find an answer without consulting the gurus here but alas, Hi gurus. I have some otherwise nice twin sheet genoa blocks on my 1 1/4 track but they have a serious problem of always laying down so that my genoa sheets ride on the metal housing and not on the block. It puts my sheet at a sharp angle over a sharp edge and is no good whatsoever.
I see that my blocks, like all of them, are supposed to pivot from side to side, and yet mine lay all the way down and this allows the sheet to ride on the housing instead of pulling up the block.
My question is this: I see on the sides of my blocks that there are holes, as though there should be a rubber stopper or support of some type that would solve this problem nicely. No where on the unit does it state manufacturer. Does anyone out there have a similar block and know where I could find these rubber supports?
Sorry, I don't have a picture yet.
