You raise a very good point and something I didn't think about until I saw the bar mounted and realized that the single axis pivot is really all you need to get these things out of the way...because if you are deep enough that you need more axis of deflection than other stuff is getting fairly wrangled as well! This light bar is designed to prevent a little to medium oops from turning into a total disaster. In my kickstarter right up I have the whole philosophy laid out in full (still delayed). Much of that philosophy though can be summarized by the acronym KISS though...although the ram ball type could potentially be simplified as utilized on this sort of thing.
