My Yamaha C2 requires a 'between-the-beams' installation of the humidifier tank support rods. However, I don't like the idea of the plastic support brackets being 'twisted' in order to hold the rods between two non-parallel beams, even though this is the generally accepted method.

Has anyone devised an alternative method for securing the rods between non-parallel beams?

I presume the twisting is because of the angle of the beams? Why not put a wedge spacer behind where the bracket attaches so that it becomes a flush mount?

Thanks Dan. The 'wedge' option was a method I'd considered. To be honest I'm just a little surprised that DC themselves haven't improved on this aspect of their design especially since the majority of grands are constructed with non-parallel beams.
