Left - Attaching immediately above the lower (3") tube, two ring clamps allow the struts to orient in any direction.
Because the struts attach relatively low down on the pole they do not require a large spread at the deck.
Right - The lower end of the strut is terminated in a welded eye end. The eye is attached to a heavy duty deck hinge with Neoprene washers to stop any movement or rattle.
A tube clamp is optional - we generally discourage attaching to stern rails as any movement in them can be magnified higher.
