The weather isn't going to let up, it even snowed. But, I couldn't stand it anymore, I positioned it on the rail and put a saddle on it for drill.
It fits snug over the rails (a good thing - reduces wobble). The lower part rest against the next rail down giving it really firm and sturdy support. It is solid metal and heavy so the "rail fit" and lower support really matter. I put a saddle on it and it didn't even flinch. YES! Something that works as well as you hope it will!!!
I am very happy with it.
FWIW, anyone with panels that is thinking of getting one: the panels I put it on are standard commercially available panels. I use to have custom panels and the pipe rails on those were larger in diameter - and I do not believe it would have fit them.
You can, alternatively, mount it to a wall. But, I think its biggest "appeal" is the fact you can position it on rails and move it to wherever your wish.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
