One thing about using the BB like that is the shell is less likely to leak. No telling what the original idea was, might have been tie points for a 3 pound pooch .

Robert,

The only way I've found to post "upside up" pictures is to transfer them from my iPad to the computer, turn them around, save them, and use that "modified" picture.

I used to put all my pictures upside down because it was my only option. I'd rather take extra time and avoid the "upside down shame"...

Well, in my defense, I couldn't tell from the picture how big or strong they were; visual perspective was somewhat lacking.

In fact without perspective, I thought that perhaps they were attachment points for a hoist so that you could raise the trailer off the floor to work under it. Or if the ceiling were high enough, raise it up to have storage underneath.

OK, I didn't really think that was what they were for.. but for some reason the thought did come to mind.

Zoomed in as the picture is to show detail does sort of remove context for size. I have used and seen copper and steel/galvanized pipe, cable, and conduit clamps like that enough times that I recognized them, that provided the size perspective.

I did something like that when I put an awning from a 16 ft trailer on our 13 ft Boler and could wrap it around the, end a bit. Worked well and gave us more or an outside room.
