ID This Unistrut Part?

Can anybody ID this Unistrut part? I can’t locate it in the huge Unistrut catalogue, so need a part number or actual name of the part:

Yup, two hold pipe strap. Used a bunch of them over the years. They also make them in two pieces that bolt together at the top and hook into the strut.

I like the one-piece style and can’t seem to find them locally. Online is wanting a ton for shipping just a few. Any ideas for where to get these?

Platt Electric. They should have them in stock at the Beaverton warehouse.

Thanks, cb. Nope, seems everyone has to order it and they’re all talking 3-4 weeks lead time from Unistrut. Man, this is a frustrating rabbit hole. I think I’m going to try another direction. I’m just trying to attach my Yakima bars to the Unistrut with something stronger than the thin-gauge straps at Home Depot. Maybe I’m going to have to resign myself to drilling straight through the bars, something I didn’t really want to do.

Pretty much any electrical supply house carry's Unistrut. call around to a few, and one will probably have them. It might be a less popular part number, but someone should have them.

Thanks. I’ve called every supply house in the PDX metro area and have moved on to Wahington. Absolutely nobody has this thing. I finally found a supply shop in Vancouver that had something similar from another manufacturer. Every single place said some version of, “Unistrut is terrible about filling orders for anything but the channel stuff.” One guy actually called me back today and said he can get that part ordered, he checked with Unistrut, and they said they have to make the part and it’ll be 4-5 weeks”. Make the part?? Geez, we’re talking backwoods here.

I even had a convo with a big supplier in NY, who said I’d wind up paying $25 a piece by the time they special ordered it and had it shipped.

I’m hoping this Vancouver place comes through on the substitute. I’ll let y’all know what happens.

FYI - ACME construction is a huge supplier of SuperStrut. The Hillsboro branch does the most volume (to the tune of 7 figures every time Ronler Acres expands). They probably have more accessories readily available, but the counter help there is kinda like walking into an Autozone....

You can buy the Yakima shear blocks and bases for around $30. They would need a bolt up from the bottom of the Unistrut, but you could bolt them to a plate that bolted to the Unistrut if adjustment from the top is important.
