    Default Gutter clamps

    Hi guys

    Where in Pta can I buy universal gutter clamps for a roof rack that I want to build?

    Thanks

    Front runner's prices eish...

    If you're building your own roofrack already... They're not hard to make, I made a cardboard template of my roof shape, then got some plate laser cut and bent. I drilled out the threads of an M10 coupling nut and welded it to the plate. Cut off the head of a bolt, weld it to some angle that goes under the gutter and you have the "hook", use a nut to tighten.

    I can send you a picture this evening if you whatsapp me on 072 four nine two 531 five

    That's the model of the bracket. The hole in the lower section is to allow you to turn the nut easily. I omitted it on mine because I wasn't really thinking. I'll take some pictures and upload them later tonight.

    Sorry, forgot to take pictures. I've added the roof gutter (red), the coupling nut (green) and the bolt and angle assembly (blue). Hope that makes sense

    Here's the CAD if anyone wants:
