Rubbermaid brand Marquee Retainer
« on: July 22, 2011, 04:13:50 pm »
While shopping at the arcade section of Lowes home improvement warehouse, I found what I'm going to use for marquee retainer for Switchcade.

It's a steel track designed to hang closet shelving systems from.  Comes in white powder coat but I'm going sand it and paint to match the cab. Basically very similar to the Happ's plastic retainer but locally available in a lot of markets. 




In the second pic the end is bent, but I'll cut that off.

I was just looking for some retainers that I had taken out, sanded and painted. Went to look in the shed and they aren't there, so this may be an easy replacement for those cabinets.

That looks real close to what I used.  I used carpet edging, and painted it black.   It worked great and looked way better than when Ive seen some people use full aluminum angle iron.

Guilty of using the aluminum, it looks like a trip to Lowes is in my future.
