t5 manual transmission with Wilwood slave cylinder

I have a t-5 borg warner transmission that I have purchased a wilwood slave cylinder for the clutch. I see the wilwood only has threaded hole for a "i believe 5/16i n." bolt on the rear of the cylinder? It seems that this may be too flimsy to hold the slave cylinder! I looked on the wilwood website thinking they would have a bracket for this but did not see anything. Does anyone have experienc installing these slave cylinders?

Thank You

The slave cylinder show on their website is a pull-type cylinder, desined to be used in tension, pulling in a straight line. The hole in the rear is designed to recieve a heim joint as show in their pictures, which will then be mounted to a user-fabricated bracket. Yes, the one hole is sufficient. If properly mounted there will no sideways force on the cylinder.
