I have the springs turned around so the thinner inner one's hook is on the outside. The hook pair at the front (when the stand is up, or the one on top when the stand is down) looks like yours in that both hooks are not firmly seated in the groove - the skinnier one is riding up. I zip-tied the two hooks together such that as long as fat hook is in the groove the other isn't going anywhere. The hook pair at the other end (the one on the bottom when the stand is down) looks better in that the skinnier hook is towards the outside and is firmly seated in the groove, and the fatter hook is about half in the groove but not about to come off without the skinnier hook coming completely out of the groove.
I've had no problems with mine for the past 2-1/2 years and many thousands of miles. I think as long as you have one of the hooks firmly seated in each of the grooves you'll be OK.
