autozone helper spring installed.. question

I just installed the $25 helper springs from autozone at the front of the leaf springs..resolved my axle wrap completely.

Question - The front mount of the helpers look pretty flimsy.. just a piece of bent steel with a bolt thru it. I"ve read at lease one account of it ripping out of its rivet. I think that person might have over tightened the bolt. How tight should it be? As tight as possible? Or have it be loose so the leaf pack can slide around a bit?
