Bimini Top retaining clip corrrect mounting?
I do not guess it matters much, but the retaining clip mounts on my Bimini top which has the plastic associated hardware have a slight bend to them and the clip is mounted (riveted) with the bend facing towards the pole. I have ordered the Stainless Steel replacements and they do not mount the same, they mount using an Allen screw which screws into the previous rivet hole on the pole. So this means I will have to drill an additional hole to mount the clip and lanyard. So I am wonder if there is a reason the clips are mounted with the mount bent portion facing the pole. All I can figure is if the clips are mounted facing out, it could conceivability then become a slight hazard to catch items.
Anyone have any ideas?
Which way do you clips face in towards the pole or outwards away from the pole.
