Stall Fences

I saw photos of a highlander with stall fences. The registration is N422CH. Anyone have any info on how well they work and how they are installed ?

Lynn Gardner built those stall fences. I asked her about them, and she sent me the following.

"We had to put a false rib under the STOL fence to give it support. Its not something you can just add the way its designed. I had a fiberglass shop make them to my specs and filled and finished them from raw glass."

It looked like there needed to be another rib, as the intersection of flap and ailerons is rib free. The top half of a rib bonded in with the cap strip and anchor nuts bonded into the cap strip to screw on an aluminum stall fence would work.
