But if you push down the whole tube with the basket a little, a new hole (or gap) appears, which is in the right position.
The only question is what will happen with this when playing the snare?
For me it looks like being the beginning of the gap in which the quick-release part is working.
So will it keep it’s place, or will it move down further step by step?

Here are before / after pics to show the different position of the tube.

Hmm, the tension screw block on my stand only has one set of holes. If yours does indeed have two sets then use the ones that will keep the same position otherwise it will effect the clamping.
