I put my steadicam scout in low mode with F bracket.  Problem, the gimbal rubs against the handle.  I know what is happening.  The gimbal is separated by the handle by about 2mm.  When I rotate the camera upside down the gimbal head snaps down and brushes against the handle top, thereby creating a friction rub.  With this the steadicam does not rotate smoothly.  My rig is about 17lbs.  I decreased it to 7lbs but the gimbal still "slips" when upside down.  It pops back when I rotate the camera back to regular mode and rotates smoothly again of course.  Please advise.
