Do you have an example on how this attaches to the frame? Could I get a smaller size than what my frame calls for with out issues?
You need some tension on the ends... there is a little bit of spring in the handle that allows for that. It isn't tight enough to hold without the strap, but combine them together and it is a solid mount. I wouldn't go small or you won't get a good fit.
