There are adjustments of the mounting clips (fore and aft), and the clip that is giving you a problem. Between the two there should be a combination that fits your rack and positions it correctly. I've had my classic rollers on three different racks (Tubus Cargo, Blackburn Expedition, and Trek) and have not had a problem.

I suspect that you could mount the lower clip on the upper half of the mounting bracket with the opening facing the front of your bike. Adjust the upper clips to get the desired fore and aft position, then pull the bottom clip up snug so there is no fore and aft play. Just unscrew the bottom clip, and use it as a wedge to change the retainer bolt's position from top to bottom of the oval retainer.

Once adjusted properly they mount and dismount in seconds.
