Band problem - Small

I got a deal on a old (10 plus or more years old) but unused Small from a authorized dealer back in November with the old scissor type hinges on the sides. Every time I opened the unit and tried to engage the hinges they pulled up the band hence misaligning the dome and base. I could see that there was a sizing problem and contacted BGE and they exchanged it with the same type bands but that fit better but as much as I tighten them there is still band slippage on the rim. The person I dealt with said he thought that the current spring assisted bands might be too wide and would prevent the 2 halves from closing all the way. Can one of you guys with a recent model small with the spring assist measure the width of the band and post the exact measurement? Mine are about 1/2". If the spring assist is the same I will get one. Not urgent. When you get around to it. Thanks guys!
