10 Dobsonian Shroud

Hello everyone, new to astronomy and on the Gold Coast.
Ive just purchased a skywatcher shroud for my SW 10 Dobsonian. Im hoping it will help contrast wise from my light polluted backyard.
My problem is the four bars sewn into the shroud to keep it out of the light path seem to be in the wrong place. There are four and they are all equally spaced.
When you wrap it out around the 3 struts two of the match up with the truss bars which means they are not holding the material away enough from the open sections of the tube.
Am I putting it on wrong (Ive tried several positions) or do I need to sew new pockets and move a couple of the bars?
Does anyone have experience with these?
