Looking for unistrut solar panel end-clamps...

MaineCabinMaineCabin Solar Expert Posts: 29
Hi,

I just installed a couple of new solar panels using unistrut. I tried to jerry-rig some end-clamps but they are not working so well. Does anyone know where I can buy some purpose built end-clamps that work with unistrut? Or share a good design? (Supposedly unistrut makes a clamp but I cannot find where to buy them)

My panels are 1.5" deep.

Thanks!

    M C,

    Guess that you have seen this:

    I might try using a Strut Channel Nut, and someone else's Clamp.

    The UniStrut, B-Line, etc PV mount products may be special-order from your favorite local wholesale Electrical Distributor, but often from semi-local warehouse stock.

    FWIW, Vic
