Tee nuts for PH top.

They all went in pretty easy. One of the front clamp bolts was stripped so a hack saw blade was needed but all in all it went smooth. Did not need a person on top holding the bolt to tighten them down.

Now when it cools off I will cut the bolts off inside and put the caps back on inside.

Re: Tee nuts for PH top.

So what was the cost of those each? They look fine. Are they Stainless?

Re: Tee nuts for PH top.

It only cost me about $20 to have them done but he is a good friend that I have programmed and set a few drives for.


My guess is they would cost around $100 and yes they are stainless.

jlrray, sorry for the delayed rely. I have not made any progress on manufacturing these things and I don't think I will in the foreseeable future. I just have to many things going on. Sorry about that. But luckily, it looks like gooseberry is on to an alternative.


Kelly, That looks like a much simpler but equally effective design then mine. Being able to just make one size and then cutting them to fit is a big advantage when it comes to producing a large quantity. You really should look into making them because I know there a people that would be happy to eliminate those stacks of washers that can cause leaks.

Nice work,
John

Re: Tee nuts for PH top.

I will see what the cost for a set of 12 would be. I like having a spare just because.


I think yours are cleaner looking then mine and was going to do the same but my holes through the roof are 1/4 inch and I could not get myself to drill a larger hole. Now the only issue I did have on one of the bolts is the hole was at a bit of a angle but was able to loosen the other 3 and work it flat. I used a dremal with a cut off wheel to cut down the bolts. Remember to use anti sieze on stainless or they will become one.

Now I can wash the van and not worry about water getting in. I had only one bolt that was rusted and it was the one by the drip.

Will be sending you a PM but had an interesting thought. It might be nice to have four of them made with a 1/4x20 threaded rod coupling sticking out the top. That way you could use them to mount solar panel supports right to the bolts and not have to drill additional holes in the top.

Tee nuts for PH top.

L bracket would also give more flexibility for attachment.

Re: Tee nuts for PH top.

ok I have 4 sets in with him to make and asked about welding a tab on top. He said not a problem but needs a drawing from me.

I was thinking 4 of them could get the tab and make it 1 1/2 inch square. No holes so that you can drill and mount what works for you application?
