CataRaft Angled Struts
PN: YSA (Yoke Strut Angled); Height (in); Reach (in), Angle of Deviation (Deg)
In geometry, the Pythagorean Theorem is stated such that: the three sides of a right triangle are related by the sum of their squares. Specifically, the sum of the squares of the x and y components is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.
Case in Point: YSA,8,11,56 with a Height (y) of 8” and a Reach(x) of 11”, Deflection Angle of 56 also works mighty fine as a YSA,7,12,56 and a YSA,9,10,56, within normal tolerances.
YSA,8,11,56 are designed for cat tubes in the range of 14” to 18” SI (350-450 x10^-3m)
Angled struts are a means to improve the load carrying capacity (displacement) while maintaining walkway clearance. RowFrame YSA struts rely on moment resistance of the setscrew connections positioning the longitudinal stringers into their design position.

Some have asked: Why the 9.25" dimension of Planar Struts?
When Moses decended from Mt Sanai, she brought forth 4 qty. 20mm rocket boxes for use in a cargo array.
The original translation being in ancient Hebrew, hopefully nothing was lost.
