Vengeance 170+Slinks Can't Post

I have bougth a Vengeance 170 three weeks ago with slinks from PD.
I Love this canopy in flight and flare
I do have one problem with the slider, on openinig (soft) when it comes down and the front rings go past the slinks and in front of my face while the back rings stay above the steering toggels.
My quaistion is what do I do first ? espacially if it open 90' off heading.
I have asked in my dropzone and got alot of different answer ,still wants to here more

be prepared to put one hand on your slider to get it off of your face and the other on a rear riser to avoid someone if you need to.

Talk to your rigger about installing riser blocks to replace your loops.

Skydiving is not a static excercise with discrete predictability...

Thank's for the advise, but finally we had warm weather no glove at 12000ft
and with the opening as I kill the slider all the way , it get over the steering toggel in one move and behind
my head.
problem solve (at least till next winter)
