Are there any techniques to stop the screwgate I'm belaying with from cross-loading?

If you are mostly sport climbing, one good option could be to buy a belay biner like BD Magnetron Gridlock (https://shop.epictv.com/en/carabiners/black-diamond/magnetron-gridlock-carabiner-2015). When using a traditional screwgate keeping tension on the carabiner helps massively to avoid crossloading.
