What is the Zinc?, beetle, Vancouver, BC I noticed the Zinc version RAM-B-231ZU and the other version RAM-B-231U is very similar... what exactly is the Zinc thing? I assume it is the only difference between the two products?
Reply #1: Sep 25, 2012, 7:56am Zinc is what the Ubolt is plated with.
Reply #2: Sep 25, 2012, 10:14am How do I know which one I should choose? what are their advantanges?
Reply #3: Sep 25, 2012, 10:31am The RAM-B-231U stainless steel version will be the one that you would want to use in and around a salt water environment.
The stainless steel will be less likely to corrode than the zinc plated u-bolt.
Reply #4: Sep 25, 2012, 6:35pm So the Zinc one is not as good? Why is it more expensive?
There is no advantage of the Zinc one over the stainless steel one?
Reply #5: Sep 26, 2012, 7:14am The zinc plated mount is good, just not as good as the stainless steel mount when used in a marine application.
The zinc plated mount comes with an extra u-bolt that will fit 1.25 inch bars.
