Adjusting SERFAS Carbon bottle cage?

I have SERFAS carbon water bottle cages on my Aero.
One of them has suddenly gotten a bit loose for my bottles.... (OK, I did crash on it)
Can the cage be bent with heat to better hold my water bottles?
Any other suggestions?
 
At $50.00 each,,,, I don't want to destroy it.

    I use these:

    and zip tie them directly to my carbon seat with removable zip ties.
    Eventually the zip tie breaks.  I carry a couple spares: I zip tie 2 tire levers to either side of my spare tube.
    Eventually the cage breaks after a few seasons. They're $15. They're really light. They hold bottles pretty tight, especially with the way I zip tie the cages.

    I use these: http://poweroncycling.com/product/cateye-bc-100-518.htm
    Cheap, light, and just about indestructible.

    Bernie, next time we ride, I'll show you my Zefal cages. Probably as light as yours, but, hold the bottle securely yet allows the bottle to slide out easily.
