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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaleRose Did what it was supposed to do
used as part of a pvc corrugated roof project. Easy enough to install. Had to go online and look for direction from the manufacturer but otherwise uneventful job.

Easy and quick installation. I liked the fact that it could be readjusted if needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BuilderPete Works as advertised
These are necessary to complete the project yet Home Depot does not typically carry them in store and you have to order them. They carry the other products to get going but not the plastic strips to secure the cover. Why not? It is real frustrating to have to wait for an order to finish up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Karbaker Order received was partially wrong item
16 of the 60 ordered is the wrong product. They are rounded plastic closure strips instead of the squared off closures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DallasDude52 Palruf Horizontal Closures MANDATORY for water proof seal!
Fortunately for you all reading this (and unfortunately for me) I didn't put these in FIRST and you can learn from my mistake! I had to take up my panels and reinstall with these and the foam end caps SO I recommend you do these first for water proof seal. Easy to install, slotted ends to attach one to the next. These also have countersunk drill holes for screw down installation where possible. Mine was installed over glass so I used silicone caulk instead. BONUS these are so inexpensive, you'll be sorry if you don't!!
