Mustang Passenger Backrest Mounting?

Are any of you using a mustang passenger backrest with an HD sissy bar? The Harley passenger backrests are recessed to receive the sissy bar. Mustang offers a recessed and non-recessed backrest pad. I don't see how a non-recessed pad would center its self when mounting to the sissy bar. I also don't understand how the pad would stay up if someone pushes down on it. It seems like the sissy bar is only sandwiched between the triangular bracket and the pad. Am I over thinking this? Do non-recessed pads actually work when mounted like this?
