Question about SolarMax 60 and Adapter Plates

I'm considering purchasing a SolarMax 60 and mounting it to my 6 inch f/8 achro. But I was wondering if someone here could tell me how the SolarMax 60 front element is secured to the adapter plate that goes on the scope objective. Does it screw in or simply plop in with another means to secure it in the hole? I may want to have a local machine shop fabricate a suitable adapter plate for me which is why I'm asking. Thanks and if someone would post some pix to elaborate I'd be much obliged.
