Default Eliminating uneven bimini to cats paw connections?

Do others have this problem where a bimini is bowed out on one side? Am I not tying my biminis right or is the cat's paw from the wind-on leader slipping to one side of the loop? Its aggravating because once the cats paw cinches down it's hard to loosen and reposition. Any tips out there?

I could show you very easily how to eliminate that, but it's harder to explain.

Thanks Chris...do you think it's my biminis that are slippling or on the cats paw side? I'll come see you when the season slows down. Many thanks...

I had this problem until I started having someone pull the rod back to get the Bimini tight before I do the cats paws, then slowly work the cats paw down under tension.
