I use these, they are a very simple idea.

Just chuck them in a pan of hot water and they will fit and mould to any diameter rail or A frame from 20-50mm.

google rail rest for info.

cool that looks the biz there, i like the hot water trick ,my pain was fitting the rod holder bar ,it cost me a little more then i expected, well the holders did, i did look on e bay and saw some velcro ones that tape on ,but i would of thought that after a bit of geting wet well ,but hopfully what i have done should all work and i can move them about and change there dirction well 2 of them anyway,having a small sib was a real issue in designing how everything goes and having as much space as can be,,,,,,be could to see a section on here of peoples inventions,,,,,,,,ive seen some cracking good ideas as well ,so keep them coming folks
