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.

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.

        Better than most of the same use, it flew away, mast and flag are gone. My fault next time loc-tite on the threads. Clamp still here, maybe that is why the replacement masts.

            The flag pole DOES not fit tightly in the mount but it really can't based on design and fitting different sized rails. For the price it was a perfect solution and I like it.

                    Unable to use, will not adjust properly/securely to any of the standard rails etc on my boat. We spent a great deal of time trying to make it work without success.

                        The bracket will not fit the bow railing on my 2006 Wellcraft 252 Coastal. With the spacer, the two pieces will not close, without the spacer its too big...will not tighten securely to the railing.

                        I think I need a spacer that is about half the thickness of the one that came in the package.

                          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.
