Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 24 in horizonal plastic closure strips
The plastic strips are used to fasten down poly corrugated panels, they are flimsy. You need to use 2" screws so that the panel is fasten to wooden supports thru the closure strip. The closure strips are not strong enough to hold the panel from lifting during heavy winds. Also, the strips are flat on top, the corrugated panels have a radius, thereby flattening the corrugated panels at the attachment points. If you can find a wooden version with curves that match the corrugation, your installation will be much more secure. There was no installation guide provided with the product, had to go to the web.

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 Gunner Worth the wait.
The closures fit perfectly and were easy to install. Instructions were not included, but there is plenty of video available for do it yourselfers. Trimming them to fit was easy, and the cut was straight. I have read that the closures didn't line up with the roof panels, but I found they fit perfectly if they are installed in line.

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.

Was very easy to use and install, no problems, would have been a 5 star but its made of plastic, which tends to break.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richard Need instruction on cutting
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.
