I'll add my idea to the other good ideas listed, sometimes it's good to have
options, they might inspire better methods!
Please check the link below, go about 3/4 down the page.
Although I have a Rohn 25G tower, the stainless steel U-bolt method will
certainly work with the right size clamps for any round leg tower. Instead of a
copper backing bar, as I used, you could use aluminum or steel etc. Just need
something so the flat clamp that comes with the u-bolt doesn't bend when you
tighten it down, you'll get the idea when you see the pic.
