Suggestion to Flex: provide better install instructions in the Quick Start Guide for the fixed angle foot.  "Attach the included fixed angle foot to the back of the unit using the provided screws" is inadequate.

Provide a diagram and a method for inserting the screws.  There are round cutouts in the angled bracket that I guess are supposed to be used for a screwdriver blade to reach the screw heads but the holes are only properly aligned to pass a screwdriver blade for the center of the 3 screws.  This method doesn't work for the two side screws.  Is there an error in the design of the bracket  or was I supposed to bend the bracket until those round holes somehow lined up?  I ended up using a right angle screw driver for the two side screws.  Installing a simple bracket like this needs to be a no-brainer for new owners who unpack their Maestro and want to get it all hooked up, and it isn't.

Playing with it again now and a thinner shafted screwdriver works for all the holes on my bracket.  I was using one of those replaceable tipped fat shafted screwdrivers last night when I was having the problems.  So all you guys were correct.  Sorry.
