If this mount is only rated safe and secure, then it may or may not meet the other categories on its own or in all installations. However, this mount is at least suitable for external attachment on all experimental aircraft. Though experimental aircraft do not fall under the same regulations for installation as certified aircraft, violations are still possible under FAR 91.13 and 91.15 such as with sticky mounts, suction cups, and plastic mounts failing. If installed, maintained, and operated properly, this mount is of the highest quality to never fail. All responsibility is on the installer and operator. The hardware and parts needed varies with each install. Provisions such as loctite or safety wire should be used as needed.
