The short-sale rule was a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) trading regulation that restricted short sales of stock from being placed on a downtick in the market price of the shares

Perhaps one workaround might be to scan daily for a 10% drop in the stock price overnight (or whatever the SEC rules specify a SSR condition) Not real convenient and may not get too many hits daily.
