X1 Board rack fingers not clamping tight enough

The last couple of times out on the lake, the boards in my racks have been coming loose while underway. Today, a board came completely out of the rack. Everything was properly clamped down. There was a bit of wind and I was moving at ~30mph. The flat bottom boat can ride a bit rough at that speed, so things do rattle and move around, but over several seasons with the boat, I’ve never experienced the rack clamps coming this loose.

Before anyone asks, they didn’t un-clamp, but it appeared that the relative wind on the board overcame the pressure of the spring loaded clamp.

Has anyone experienced this, and if so, is there a way to tighten the clamps in the fingers enough that the boards are secure?

Thanks
—Sky
