Should be alright with a 14mm rail.
Sorry I wasn't clear. It's the bottom hook that won't slip over the 14mm tube at the bottom. My Front Roller Plus and Arkel panners are both torsionally stiff so they don't really fly out at the front. The Back Packer Classics do fly out a bit in front but it doesn't really bother me.
