Has anyone replaced the binder clips that hold the sections together? I've seen other track designs that use a latch mechanism to hold the sections together, but haven't seen any Best Tracks modified this way.
With all the people that use Best Tracks, it seems like someone must have come up with a better way than using binder clips.
Thanks in advance,
This may sound alittle crazy but I think you'll like the idea for an upgrade.
What about useing aluminum or small metal C- channels that will slip over
the two connector angles under the track at the joints for the entire lenght across the track.
Drill and tap some treads for several thumb screws down one side of the channel to clamp and hold the connector angles together.
The c-channel clamp like the binder clips should lay flat under the track in the flat of the track.
Just an idea to look at..
that might work for a upgrade over useing the binder clips.
