I will check what brand ( and model if you're lucky) when they get back from camping.

I measured the hole distance in the mounting plate and that fit into the beefy area of the truck rail mount.

I fixtured it in my milling machine vise and then drilled & tapped the holes and counterbored the top for a piece of brass tubing to work as a standoff. The brass tubing allows room for your hand to tighten the knob on the truck rail mount.

I drilled the holes thru so it wouldn't trap water in the hole and corrode.
