Default NMO lip mount for Equinox

Has anyone used an NMO lip mount on the tailgate of a 2017 Equinox? If so, which one will fit? The gap is pretty tight!

Thanks,

Fred WA0GMH

Here is a link of someone using a lip mount on an older model, might send him a message and talk with him:

Diamond K412SNMO. Used it on my 2011 Equinox. Will be using it on my 2017 Traverse. It uses RG316U coax. No problems fitting it through tight spaces.

I don't have an Equinox but the wife has a Ford Edge. It too has a fairly tight space for a lip mount on the rear hatch. However, I used the HD-5 variant by Comet and it fit fine.
