Ludwig Black Beauty

The strainer on my Black Beauty has a throw off arm that sticks up above the rim (hard to tell in this pic, but it's pretty high). This has been a problem with dinging my fingers, and occasionally being thrown off by the stick.
I like to keep the strainer facing me, so turning the drum isn't really an option. Anyone had this happen, found a decent solution? Would like to stick with a Ludwig strainer if possible.
