I changed to a Rocna...the fit is only a problem with plate that I have across the top of the check plates....
You can see from the picture that the shank doesn’t drop down as far as it should....I'm hoping I can cut enough out of the plate for the high elbow in the shank to pass under.
Have you had any luck?

I was able to add a second roller under the pulpit to act as a stop anchor is now stable when tied down

James, that bow guard and roller assembly belongs in MOMA or the Louvre or somewhere where fine art can be appreciated!

Will the new anchor rest against the bow guard when at rest?

There are two rollers on cheek plates...the cheek plates have an axle that lets it pivot...the forward roller seats the anchor...at the same time the whole assembly rotates down aft until the checkpates rest against the SS plate over the bow.
