If you have the old style popsicle stick, this is a way to get rid of the slop in it.
buy grade 8  3/8" bolts. if you get them a little longer they will have a shoulder on them.
That shoulder is a little bigger than the threads, and fits real nice in the popsicle stick hole and also a nice fit in the eyelet.
Cut the bolt off so the threads are a little longer then the crimp nut.
Use a good quality crimp nut.
Do not tighten too tight, the bolt needs to be able to spin, with no side to side slop.
DO NOT use nylock nuts.

Excess Lateral slop

You can get rid of a lot of excess lateral movement by doing
a few simple things.
First thing is to drill and tap the case so you can make the U-channels
pivot in the center. drill a 1/2" hole through the U-channel,
and use a 1/2" shoulder bolt for it to pivot on.
For the adjustment part, grind a screwdriver slot in the head of the bolt.
That makes it easy to turn inside the U-channel.
then cut a small piece of 3/16" brake line to fill the void between the
head of the bolt and the C-clip. That alone will take out about a 1/2" of slop
on your laterals especially on long ones like a Max IV.
