Default outrigger help

My boat has outrigger mounts already installed but the poles are too high (vertical) therefore I cannot get a good wide spread. I was looking at the below item and if I placed it between the mount and pole I could adjust the poles better. My question is; how do I attach the mount and pole to it? Or if anyone has two laying around I'll consider buying them or any other idea you men may have. Thank you, Bob

Not really clear from the picture but those look like the adjustment plates used on some mounts.Looks like they have locking "teeth" between the 2 plates. Will your poles fit over the end arm filltings? Could you throug bolt your poles to them?
what is the source of the fittings?

What kind of angle are you running now? You don't want to run your riggers to flat. I like to have all the line but the leaders out of the water when lines are deployed. So the angle of my 18s are adjusted accordingly to do that. If you run them to flat you will have issues with more wind blown tangles more weeds and wont be able to run as many lines due to to much line in the water.

SVU, that is exactly what I was thinking. However the adjustable arms only measure 3/4" at the ends. My bases are 1 1/2" and then my poles are 1 1/8" and so ideally if I could find an adjustable item to match the bases and poles then I would simply "through bolt" them. I do have the two Delrin adapters that are 1 1/2" and 1 1/8". As for pics I have the angle showing of one of the bases, but, I do not know how to post a pic. I've read the instructions but they are a little difficult for me. The bottom line is appearing to be that after 11 years I can not attach brand new, never used, outriggers to a boat. Thanks again, Bob

Adustment clamps like that are found on some TACO models and ive gotten other replacement parts fro mthem in the past. Maybe worth a call.

I have searched the internet for the last three days @ 8 hrs/ day and still have found nothing from any post or any site. My never used poles are coming closer to going over the side every day.

go to a machine shop that does aluminum and stainless piping, sure it is a simple job.

Well I finally found what I'm after. The exact parts I need at Rupp Outriggers, Inc. Here is the pic, I need two of these and will consider purchasing used pair. They should be 1 1/2" OD on both ends. Thank you all, Bob
