Spreading Forks


My bike has 96mm fork dropouts. I have been using 100mm hubs for a few years with no issues, except for the hassle of having to spread the forks when installing the wheel. I used a dropout alignment tool tonight and spread the forks out 3 times to 115mm, and every time, they snap right back to 96. Should I leave it in place overnight? Is there a better way?
