I did try to use the item  for install, but it's too short or it's for install where is no gutters ? Or it must have other part(s) ?

Strange;

 

Never seen a sharp right-angle under eave mount like that;

The only ones I was aware of are always designed with rounded corners with length and angles for rain gutter clearance like these;

Yeah ...

 

That must be it, seems to be designed for Dish installs where there are very short eaves without gutters. Not suitable for DIRECTV dish installs even though this Amazon.com listing includes it along with Dish Network.

This mount can only be used with the small size base foot on the SD DTV dish.  It will not work with the larger foot used on the DTV HD dishes.  I used it to install my HD SWM 5 dish with 2 inch adapter on the top.  This HD dish replaced an SD dish.

I see; did try it at my rafters - the plate would be in vertical position; so could be using Slimline with own "shoe" and two supports
