Liner tear where Nicerink bracket meets liner

Looking to see if anybody has any advice on how to avoid this next season. During a midwinter thaw, I noticed my ice level decreasing an inch or two per day only to find that I had a tear in the liner where the liner met my bracket. My ice survived for six weeks until mid February, but then I noticed the decrease was more than just evaporation. The tear occurred on my depend corner which is about 16 inches deep, if that matters at all. But from the looks of it the pressure may have caused this tear. If anybody has any advice on how to avoid this I would appreciate it. I will attach to photos to give you a better look. Thanks all!

Could be liner too tight and as the water freezes it weight more and stresses more

Air pockets also can cause this effect also, Corner are more likely to Move out also

I find a few places where my liner is very tight after the first freeze up.

Now try not to pull liner tight till it iced up. Give the corners more Slacked,
