Hello YouTuber’s in this How To video I show you how to use uni-strut to mount your solar panels.
As you watch the video you see what I have used to lock the panels down and how I had them attached before. now you can also use the end clamps and mid clamps that you can buy with the Uni-rack systems. and still just the spring nuts and 1/4 bolts. I will later upgrade to those due to the fact that will make for a much cleaner install. washers work fine when panels are of the same height and size but on the ends and were solar panels are of different thickness it don’t work to well. What I have done you don’t to see it in the video on the ends were the panels start were the washer was tilted. I went and got a piece of Aluminum stock the same thickness as the solar panel and that fixed the end problem. as for the thinner panels I just put a small piece of metal to bring those panels up to the same height and it all worked out fine using just rubber and steal washers. so in the end it all worked out.
Also in this video there is a link to Missouri Wind and Solar Video were they install 920 watts of solar panels and hook them to a Solar/wind hybrid Grid Tie system. In this video he used the Uni-rack system, and all mounting hardware. Defiantly a clean install. Thanks Jeff for sharing your video. Here is a link to that video if you chose to watch it.
