Low Tension Cable - Post no 2/ Slip Base

State NE
Description Text

I suggest a change to the bolts on post no 2 on the
low-tension cable system.

Could we install the bolts with the nuts on the top side of
the “slip Base” plates?


This would help with replacement when damaged.

I do not see a difference with the bolts oriented 180 degrees from the current configuration as this change should not affect their ability to slip out of the base.
