Re: rail to pad attachment?

They are sections of 7/16” stainless launch rod. I drilled two ¼” holes transversely through the rod, and stainless hex head bolts go through those holes and into the slot on the 1010 rail. 80/20 makes a special nut that fits into the slot to accept ¼-20 bolts, used for many purposes when connecting those rails together and to the plethora of accessories they offer.

Don't our launch rails have a 1/4 or 1/2 inch rod attached to them that goes into the pad mount?  How are they secured together?
