I think that this must have been an upgrade for the 1930 model as the 1929 Sports Squirrel tanks I have merely have two threaded studs brazed into the front face of the tank and a strap which fits over them and around the down tube. I guess  that the modification was needed to try to combat the flexing which occurs in the frame and hence the long tanks ( which do not have an integral tube like the similar narrow flyer tanks). The flexing in the frame seems to cause leaks in the long tanks.
