    Thoughts on hard-mounted, movi15 to a vehicle via triangulated rods & suction cups. How fast before toad in hole gets angry? Im testing tomorrow but would love some words of wisdom.
    Thanks

    Agree would love to see some specs on Toad in Hole. Hoping someone from Freefly responds to this soon.

    Just a guess but the bolts will probably give out before either the Toad or the Hole.

    The M3 bolts on the toad and the hole are about 30 lbs for the button head and the castles are about 35lbs. The local Ace near my house sells some nice hardend stainless M3's (403 stainless) in the same lengths that have close to 100 lbs of shear strength for the castle head. They did not have button in stock but I would only assume its higher. Box of 50 cost me $45, they sell for $1.25 each otherwise.
