On my bari just after the loop on the bell side there is a protrusion with a thumb screw coming out of it. The screw hole does not enter the horn but just goes into the protrusion. The protrusion has a hole through the top to the bottom where you can see the screw enter from the front. It looks like it’s surely there to hold or secure something. A miniature music stand? I don’t know and haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere.
