These lightning protectors are neither bulkhead or flat surface (flange) mount.

There is a small screw for attaching a ground wire - but does not seem to be enough connection just to attach an appropriate gauge wire there and to the SPG pannel?

Kind of begs another question of how robust this arrestor really is, doesn't it?

If it's not made by Polyphaser, ICE or certain Alpha Delta products, I'd not consider it suitable.

I agree. Take the Cushcraft lightning arrestor and toss it in the trash where it belongs.

Get some good ones from Polyphaser or I.C.E. (Industrial Communications Engineers)

But remember, The arrestor device is really a very small part of a good lightning protection "system"

Proper bonding of grounds is much more important.
