I did not notice that difference, but ours has the two holes on the wall side and one hole towards the recliner. I put my peewee "Louisville Slugger" bat (for protection and quick access) in the front pipe, it sticks out just enough to give a nice curved surface about 2.5" above the pole and no problem with the recliner.
