I don't have one to measure, but the Tara specs are 10mm ⌀ on the top, and 14mm ⌀ for the "hoop", which is the attachment point for the bottom hoook. All of the Ortliebs I have (ranging from about 15 years old to a few months old) have inserts for the top pair of hooks to shrink them down to 10mm, and the bottom hooks are adjustable by rotating the spacer; according to the manual in front of me, the small setting is 10mm, and the larger setting is 13mm. Should be alright with a 14mm rail.
