Marquee retainer
« on: April 08, 2018, 05:22:29 pm »
Iíve been building Bartop Arcades and have always cut in a notch on the top and bottom of the marquee support with my table saw so the marquee slips right in. I wanted to try something new so I purchased some of those marquee retainer clips from suzo Happ. Well, they arrived and I have no friggin clue how to use them.  I may be just over thinking it. Is it as simple as laying the flat part on on the under side of the marquee section and the curved piece facing upwards so it holds the marquee? I must be missing something.

That is it, except you need a piece on the top as well.

Dang, I figured that was it. Doesnít really leave room for tmolding. What does everyone here do to keep their marquee in place?

For a Bartop I'd just use these.  Drill pilot holes for the screws.  Spray paint them black from the inside.  The clear outside will make them look great.  They are dirt cheap at Lowe's or Home Depot:  https://www.lowes.com/pd/Miller-LLC-48-in-Plastic-Corner-Guards/1184387

I have these on my Vigolix builds:

I used poster strips. They are very cheap and commonly available:



You can just bend then to have the correct angle, drill some holes to mount them and your done  :applaud:

Bartop cabinets are not supposed to have marquees, they are designed to be a low as possible so you can still see the bartender and the bartender can still see you.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.
