I bought this to hang something "off" my rail, but my rail design won't work with it. This bracket extends across the rail to hang an item off the opposite side of the rail from which it mounts. To hang outside the deck, it has to mount to the inside of the rail. Unforunately, the "inside" side of my rail is too wide to accomodate the mount. So for my application it won't work.
It is sturdy, well made and long enough to hang the small items I had planned on displaying. So I have to give the product a good review. I just didn't pick up on it being a "one-sided" mount for my deck.
