Here’s the way I do it, learned from the late Nikki:
I use undersized runners (width-wise) and use masking tape to shim them towards the blade before attaching them to the sled. This eliminates any issues like you’re having because the runners could be 1/2” wide and still be snug on the saw. After making the initial cut to align the fence I use a quick grip clamp to squeeze the two sides of the base a bit so they don’t move away from the blade. Works perfectly and slot size and fit are not an issue at all.
