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 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1blueox better than wood
the wood closures I used at first kept splitting when I screwed the sun-tuf panels in place, so I decided to spring for the plastic ones instead. The only hassle was that the stores don't carry them, they are special order only so my project was delayed by the week or so it took to get them ordered and delivered. Once I had them, the rest of the job went well and my wife is pleased with the results. I'm afraid the patio is next!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer 24 in. Horizontal Plastic Closure Strips
We replaced the worn out fiberglass roofing on our 10x15 covered patio and decided to go with Suntuf 26 in. x 12 ft. Solar Gray Polycarbonate Corrugated Roofing Panels. With our old fiberglass corrugated roofing panels we did not use any kind of closure strips but this time I decided we would try them. They didn’t carry them at the local home depot so I had to order them which was no big deal especially with free shipping and they were here in no time. I would definitely suggest using them for they kept me from over tightening the screws and smashing the roofing panels as you’re not supposed to do. At just under $6 for a package of 6 they are worth it and I feel will help support the roofing panels better. Also I would suggest ordering the correct screws with the neoprene washers. The heck with roofing nails with the rubber washers, they won’t last.
