My experience as well.    The mount is wayyy to flimsy.

Equinox has some much heavier duty mounts which I hope to get my hands on in
a week or two.   They would fix that flimsy thing right up and make it quite
solid.

I have seen an example of one that wasn't for the grids, and they are
incredibly solid.
