For Pedestrian Use
For installation where pedestrians will be walking then the plate can be bolted down for use. These bolts will take a little more time to install because you must connect the plate and ratchet them down to keep them safely in place. The benefits of the bolts are not noticeable but have less protrusion and there is no concern about someone tripping on them.
