It is a weight situation. The TZ14 is a hefty piece of gear,

I have two friends that have hung their TZT 14's from the top. One has had it up since 2015. They are heavy commercial units with metal housing and cooling fans in the back. Neither has had a problem. I think Furuno is just covering their butts so it doesnt come down and hit someone on the head.. Just secure it right with through bolts or other wise..

Here is one boat that has a 14" hanging from the top for the aft station:
