Fallard has some good advice, but before you do that, it might be better to adjust the hook you have to point UP instead of to the side. For the vang, the slide you picture might work, though the picture looks a bit light for the duty. A heftier one might be better. I would also worry about the whole thing pulling out of the track and destroying the slot if you put some real oomph on the vang. Using a long slide might help spread the load and avoid that problem.
