Maybe if you cut an old piece of intertube and wrapped it around the post before you slid the rack attachment over it, you might get a more snug fit....or, they make a product called "friction tape" --- it's usually found in the electrical department with the black tape. That stuff would work great, also!
That's basically what the box-supplied stuff is: thick innertube. I'll mess with it sometime this summer I imagine.

You replace the wire too? The factory wire is crap as I found out when putting on my Bosch wire...
