Default Bazooka "T" draining

I recently purchased a Bazooka T screen with SAnke keg adapter.

Is there a way to increase the volume of liquid (wort) that is picked up from the Sanke Keg? Right now, I have about a GALLON of liquid left over in my Sanke keg with the Bazooka T Screen and adapter attached. The Bazooka T is almost touching the bottom of the keg when it is installed.

Also, should the included SS hose clamp be installed on the slotted-side of the elbow?

I have the same problem. It can't go any lower, so I just use my auto-syphon to let the last gallon out. I don't clamp the bazooka on, so i can remove it easier for cleaning. It's a pretty snug fit and hasn't fallen off during the boil yet.

That's a bummer. I have a pick up tube from B3 with a false bottom. With that setup, I can drain the keg down to the last 8oz.
