The lightweight plastic wasn't the problem for us as the sail seemed to slide over that easily. Rather it was the area underneath the bracket where the sail could wrap itself effectively around the whole assembly...and so it did, snapping the aluminum
arms underneath the radar
Hopefully though...now never again...
