This attachment option includes a plate welded to the ball stud, which can then be attached to a structure using different methods. Both the plate and ball stud are aluminum. Holes are provided in the plate which can be used with screws to attach to a wood post or wall, or bolt into a metal frame.
A pair of U-bolts are included, which can be used to attach the plate along a pipe, as might be found on a fence, a railing, or scaffolding. The U-bolts can work with pipe as large as 2” in diameter, or using industry terminology: NPS 1.5”, NM 40mm, or NM 40.8mm scaffolding pipe.
