I just bought this same set up. I loved the simplicity of it and after I saw this post I was sold. You can give yourself a little more leg room. The actual loop has a single bolt point, so I just rotated the loop so that the muzzle end of the boot pointed a little further away. It's not much but it helps.

I put mine to the test opening rifle weekend for deer hunting, and have found that the these rubber plungers absolutely DO NOT like any type of moisture or slick liquid (tire shine) whatsoever. Opening morning I'm going to my hunting spot, it's drizzling rain, and next thing I know I look over and watch the whole assembly and gun boot topple off the side of my bike and into the mud. Needless to say I was pissed and started mumbling profanities, re-attached it, went a little further, and it happened again. By that point I was ready to throw it 1,000 yards because I was so mad. Sun came out and the rack dried out and the plungers hold just fine. So for all you wanting to buy this make sure your rack is clean and dry before you attach it.

Good to know STX! Haven't messed with it in the rain. I did raise the pitch where the muzzle end is almost touching the rear fender plastic (to give me more leg room). While this does improve me bumping it when I'm getting on and off the strain on the plunger connections has the case swinging a little left to right (not to bother me) but I just want to make sure it stays on!

I love using the bun boot and liner to tote the gun in the bed of the truck, does so well for this. I'm all in bracket and boot for like $95 with some sales earlier this year so I'm happy with it.

Yea, it was frustrating at first, and I learned the hard way, but it works great now, I think if you have it attached before a rain storm came along, I doubt the water would be able to seep down between the plastic and plungers and cause them to slip. I'm just mad my mount got all beat up falling into the mud and gravel. Yea that gun boot is one tough SOB, imagine if Kolpin and Pelican collaborated, and then us hunters would have the ultimate combo.

Take a 1" plumbing wire cleaning brush and take off the sheen inside the holes before inserting rubber! Does the trick!!!

It stays in place as long as temps are above 50 degrees, but drop and the rubber shrinks and rattles like crazy.
Yeah man! Mine starts out nice and secure, but after a couple minutes it starts getting loose and I am worried that it will fall right off one of these times. I've tried to tighten those locknRide thingys but nothing seems to be much help.

I'll give it another shot this season with the tips from the thread here, hopefully that helps!
