Just a reminder...

It saved mine a couple of days ago. I attached my 12" SCT on my Paramount while the mount was horizontal. I left the mount horizontal and did some other work on the mount, but neglected to completely tighten the clamp screws down that hold the OTA.
Later when I rotated the mount 90 degrees so it pointed skyward I was treated to the sound of very loud POP! The sound was the OTA sliding down the Paramount's Versa-Plate and coming to an abrupt stop by the 2 screws I have on the end. These 2 screw stopped the OTA from sliding off on the floor. Talk about my heart skipping a beat.
So remember to attach your stop screws on the end of your rail or dove-tail plate.
