Clamping the torch into the holder

I am in the process of setting up my Crossfire. I have a Razorcut 45 with the new X45 torch. There is no way the torch handle is going to fit in the clamp. Do I really clamp the torch by its cup? It seems really sketchy.

That’s the way they made it. It is a cheesy way to mount the torch. I would make a bracket something like this to mount the torch like we did years back.

Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to do this once I am up and running.
