I admittedly mounted this on my bow rail, but the curve was not terrible. But as others noted, the sizes seemed off. By my measurement, I am sure i have 7/8 rails on my 24' boat. The nylon sleeve made it too thick and I couldn't even begin to get one half of the staff holder on the rail. But again I was putting it on a slightly curved rail. Others mentioned having to machine the holder. I just wrapped electricians tape around the rail in lieu of the nylon insert, bit by bit adding or subtracting winds until I got the right thickness.
However in the instructions it does not specify that one needs a 3/16 hex head tool to tighten the staff holder. I guess I should have paid attention to the pictures in the instructions where I could see that one screw was a slotted head and the other was the hex head, but one does not necessarily look at that in detail until installing it. I don't have a hex head set in my boat, and had to row back out a few days later with the tool, to complete the instillation.
Smartest looking pennant holder and staff around, I think.

Just purchased the 30" flagpole and mount kit today, and noticed a couple of things that are less than satisfactory. I mounted it on a 1" railing, but the mount did not tighten completely up, and left a small gap between the two pieces. When I put in the flagpole and tightened the set screw to the letter of the instructions, the pole is just flopping around in the mount.

It's attractive enough, does the job, but needs some better workmanship on the mount side, I think.

        The set screw that holds the staff backed out and my flag and staff went overboard and sank. I made sure I had tightened the screw but it backed out anyway

                  the bracket won't stay tight in the slightest breeze. Very pretty though now I have to get creative to get tight.

                        This mount is too large for a 1" (as measured by caliper)rail. Had to use pieces of 7/8" insert to tighten. The hex nut was too long to tighten so it had to be cut. With those modifications the clamp is now tight and closed.
