Default Re: Astro 1442 13" Rivet Nut setter

Thanks Dan,
Our 2008 came with L-track along each side wall but no attachment thingys. Researching, I found the wheelchair fittings and the O rings and snap ends but what we really desire are the threaded stud fittings. I realize it was a few years ago you did yours but do you have any suggestions on where to purchase these?
(this time I'll remember to refresh the page so I see a response sooner!)
Tkx, jeanette

cargoequipmentcorp is where I got mine. Friendly folks. They customized some L-track for me for a very reasonable upcharge.

IIRC, you can get two kinds of threaded studs from them. I believe one type centers the stud over a L-track "hole" while the other over the constricted area. Occasionally useful where spacing is critical to have the effective option of 1/2" spacing.

There is also another supplier (could not find in my notes) that offers threaded receivers instead of studs. Just another option but perhaps useful for a quick-release fitting where a thumb screw might be desired.

Thank you once again Dan. It appears they also make one with a nut (http://www.cargoequipmentcorp.com/Se...ng-p/32503.htm)
Now to figure out how many I might need of each as they are not cheap!
