What a neat idea to keep from dropping the saddles! I've always found them a
minor nuisance on my several boom-to-mast plates that use saddles and u-bolts.

Since I don't do welding, and since some of my boom/mast plates are aluminum
(on smaller beams), I'm thinking that I could drill the saddles and plates
and use a couple of sheet metal screws to fasten the saddles to the plates.
Would this be a problem with weakening of the plates or saddles? Has anyone
done this?
