Don´t worry about the clamps. They do their job on the 105. I haven´t lose
any part of the elements yet. Even under high winds up to 90 mph. Anyway, I
applied a noalox on the joints and sealed them vulcanizing rubber (Scott). I
found the HyGain system much better than rivets as use by Force as an
example. Hope this help. 73 again!
