The saddle versions rest on the tube underneath the hook of a walkboard, providing the highest rigidty while making removal of the walkboard necesarry before removal of the bracket. The clip-on version simply mounts on the frame between the walkboard hook and the vertical tubing, while less rigid these brackets can be applied or removed without having to touch another piece of the scaffolding.
