Summary: I'm going to have to come up with a creative custom solution to mount this pole bracket to a pole. I should have just purchased the wall mount, which is exactly the same product with an additional mounting plate instead of the steel straps.
Pros: The color matches my camera.
Cons: In order to mount this bracket as intended you'll need a steel strap tool. I don't have a steel strap tool, don't know where to buy, rent or borrow a steel strap tool, and don't really want to deal with a steel strap tool. Even if I was able to use the included steel straps, all that would be necessary to steal my $3000 camera would be a pair of tin snips. I expected a much more robust and easy to use solution.
