Can someone help me how to measure up the diamonds on the rail?

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it should be 1/4 1/2 3/4 measuring along the cushion from the center of the pockets.

They have very specific measurements that meet international standards. However, if your table is an odd size, it looks like you might need to adjust <blockquote><font class="small">Quote wpa-pool.com:</font><hr> 6. Rail and Cushion
The rail width must be between 4 [117.5 mm] and 7 1/2 inches [190.5 mm] including the rubber cushions. 18 sights (or 17 and a name plate) shall be attached flush on the rail cap with:

12 1/2 inches [31.75 cm] from sight to sight on a 9-foot regulation table
11 1/2 inches [29.20 cm] from sight to sight on a 8-foot regulation table.

The center of each sight should be located 3 11/16 (+ ) inches [93.7 mm (+ 3.175 mm)] from the nose of the cushion. The sights may be round (between 7/16 [11 mm] and 1/2 inch [13 mm] in diameter) or diamond-shaped (between 1 x 7/16 [28.5 x 11 mm] and 1 1/4 x inch [32 x 16 mm]). Any nameplates and score counters should be flush level with rail top. All rail bolts should be thus located that when properly torqued render a quiet and optimum rebound from any point of the cushion nose of the table.<hr /></blockquote>
