Using Aluminium angle 1/16" thick - figure what you need for dims between the side of the solar panel and the track. eg 2" x 2" x 1/16"

T Nut - Size that slides into the rack. If using T Nut, the bolt needs be short so it does not bottom out in track.

or, T Bolt - then use a nut to secure from top

Links are for example pics only. They re a very good supplier - I have no affiliation.

Unistut is also super easy to work with, and is routinely used for commercial installs. You bolt it to the track with the t-bolts or nuts Ray linked above, with the "C" open to the sky, then attached the panels using regular strut-nuts. Steel strut is available at any home improvement store or you can get aluminum or composite strut from any commercial electric supplier store.
