Just be sure to use material that will provide at least twice the 
strength needed. This is not a place where "just sufficient" inspires 
My preference would be steel channel with a brace. I'd also add a piece 
on the end sticking up to prevent slipping off.
Yes, it's more elaborate than absolutely needed, but if you were selling 
them it would be required.

They are easy to make and there'd probably be a good market, but I sure 
wouldn't want the liability.
