ZWO 5V EAF on a skywatcher ED80 black diamond

Hey guys,
I purchase a ZWO 5v EAF for my skywatcher black diamond ed80. I managed to install it with the included bracket.

Just wondering if anyone else has installed this on the same telescope because there are a few issues.

1)
the sleeve that comes with the EAF does not fit all the way into the EAF as the focusing shaft on the telescope side sits too far into the shaft and hits the saft from the EAF. I have managed to secur it but is not all the way in. Hopefully that isn't an issue.

2)
without the locking screw the fcus shaft falls out with the weight of a dslr camera. I have read that when the EAF is on it should stop it from doing that. With it powered off though the saft will slide out and I am assuming I will lose zero position for the EAF.

Thanks in advance guys.
