Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rod Better than FOAM or WOOD spacers!
These spacers are well worth the special order wait. They are all 24” in length and snap together forming an exact layout for the panels. I built a 10’ x 12’ awning and used both the horizontal and vertical closure strips together. BUT THEY ARE NOT DESIGNED TO OVERLAP. You cannot connect the vertical end-to-end at the same time you connect the horizontal end-to-end. So I cut all the vertical strips to fit between the horizontal strips since the horizontal spacing was the more exact layout I wanted. They hold together well enough that I could snap a 12’ section together on the ground and lift it up to the roof top without the sections falling apart. I will never use form or wood spacers again and think they should be an in-store item all the time.m and wood spacers in the past, but these

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedMaple Just what is needed
Makes the install of the panels quick and easy. Just line these up and place the panel on top. They can be nailed or screwed into place. The valley for mounting this bracket to the stretcher will expand slightly to allow for the screw head to be flush with the top of mount and not interfere with the panel mounting. The ridge for nailing down the panel to the bracket is slotted to allow for the nail to penetrate easier.

These strips should be installed with 1" flathead screws. The EPDM fasteners are for the sheets. It says in the video but not in the description here. I'd been all over the web wondering. Hope this helps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shopper why aren't these stocked in the stores??
I ordered these to install the Suntuf clear panels on my chicken run... I was dismayed that when I was ready to do this, I had to wait an additional 10 days to receive these supports as the nearest store to stock them was 200 miles away. Why sell a product, but not the necessary accessories??? Baffling.

There were no instructions on how to cut the clear plastic panels. I went to the company web site and found them. They should come with the product.

Needed to stabilize the sheeting I was putting above door. Looks good and now do not have to worry about wind and sheeting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Afrikaner good choice for small roofing projects
For small roofing project such as patio or RV cover or else you want to try these plastic closure strips. It matches the pattern of the roofing panels and make the roof sit properly on the frame. You can join the strips and make it as long you need it to be. Then use roofing screws to secure the panels. Also, use special flashing piece where it joins the wall. Quick and easy. Just work out the spacing first, so the closure strips will be at the right place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drusl84 Gives good even support, easy to install, gives professional appearance
My husband decided to use this in replacing our greenhouse roof. He is very happy that we chose this closure strip over the other types made for Suntuf panels. He believes the plastic closure strips will far outlive the foam or wooden strips.
The predrilled holes saved him from having to line up and drill twice. It was also easy to cut the length to fit and he liked the ways the ends interlocked. While replacing the roof he had to work on an angle and on a 12' ladder. All of these features helped make the job of replacing the roof easier. The close fit also made for a good seal. Two days after it was finished we had a good rain and we found only one small leak and that was not due to the supports.
Only drawback is that it has to be ordered and not carried in the store. Fortunately we ordered more than we thought we needed. As it turned out we had just enough to finish the job.
