Simon, I have a spare yellow box in the garage if you want to borrow it. I'll drop it round on the way to or from work this week.

Thanks Mate, I can knock something up and see what it looks like.

Would theholders look good made of stainless rod, polished. Perhaps five mm dia?

I could be up for a pair of 'holders'.

Will you make them with a clamp?

I'll need to have a look when I've borrowed the box from Pete.

The trouble with a clamp is making something that will fit different A-Frames.
I think they will need to be 'fitted', or at the least I'll need a decent dimensioned drawing or photo of what they will need to fit in each case.

One thought I had was that as most A frames are a standard pipe size then the SS pipe clamp fittings should fit, thus you could bolt it onto the A Frame without having to weld on mounts.

I have made my own box frame from stainless steel 25 X 3mm strap.

I used stainless steel Jubilee clips to fasten it to the A frame, it works a treat.

We use flat about 30mm I think easier to straighten out than pipe/bar/box. I think they were about 25 from a local fabricator. Attached by stainless ligntning banding (endless jubilee clip)
