Pro furl wrap stop question

Found that the wrap stop had slid up the forestay when I climbed the mast this fall.

Is it possible when I put the genoa on last spring things were not lined up and I caused this somehow??
Is this a simple loosen the bolts on the wrap stop and put back?

Though it may have moved by getting pushed by the halyard swivel, the wrap-stopper may actually be in the right place. You may need to hoist the jib to see where the wrap-stopper should be in order to work properly. Looks like you’ll need an Allen wrench... possibly metric.

Looks like itís in the right position. Check your manual. The main thing is making sure there is enough tension on your jib halyard to prevent wrap around during furling.

If it moved up, leave it there. Possibly the halyard shackle or knot caught on it and raised it up. It appears the angle of the jib halyard will be parallel to the head stay when the sail is fully raised so the halyard will be in contact with the stop....so the stop will be able to do what it is designed to do. Just make sure the bolts are tight so the stop can't spin around. It appears there are no gaps in the join of the two pieces of the stop, so you should be good.

Check if the bracket is positioned within the "flat" half when the sail is hoisted.
My take is that the two set screws or the screws holding the two pieces got loose or lost its grab on the wire. Pretty soon it will start rotating, so it needds attention. Mine did just that and enlarged the wire hole, so I had to purchase a new one.
First thing is to hoist the sail and check where the bracket pictured below is by using a binocular or a drone.
