    I've started making my own, and am working on a patent......I't mainly for wall mounts to help resemble a 1/4 turn shoulder mount.......brings them out away from the wall, and really showcases the rack...

    (Excuse the "roughness" of this one...it was one of my first)



    Here's a better wall view
