Jib cleats that fit 1970s era Javelins?

I have a 1970s era O'Day Javelin that needs a set of jib cleats. While I could purchase jib cleats from DR Marine, I was wondering if there are other better jib cleats available that will fit the existing jib car tracks. I realize that I could get jib cleats from another manufacturer and replace the tracks, but I'd prefer not to do that. Thanks.

Posting a picture of your track and the sliders would be helpful.

Here is what a 1979 DS II has, JAVELIN should be similar. The problem with making changes is that there is really no access to the back side of the surface. It appears that the screws are sheet-metal screws into either the fiberglass or a metal backing plate (but I doubt the metal plate, think mine was backed up by plywood. I replaces end screws with larger diameter to resecure.
