With good low-back form, the deeper the squat the better the hams get worked. So maybe setting the safety bars on nocth lower is worth a try. You don't have to lift near max to tell if it's working either!!!
Yeah I just started using RDL's as accessory work this cycle or last, I don't remember (old age lol). My depth is pretty much a function of my poor flexibility rather than the safety bar setting. I wish I had the problem of hitting the bars. Gravity with heavy weight helps though haha! But I am slowly getting better with depth.
