Sliding speed tubes and central point inflation

Hi has anyone had this experience with an F470, my speed tubes (the removable type) seem to slide forward in their pockets. When this happens it pulls on the rubber tubing interconnecting the speed to the main tubes creating a catastrophic air leak. I have then deflated the speed tube completely (in river shallows on two occasions)and pulled it back into position to take stress off the tubing connection, any insight? would it be wise to eliminate the central point inflation? Cheers Michael
