I have not seen a kk clip in real life though… April 6, 2012 at 8:10 am #654633 Splitinbend 243 Posts I added one to both mine and my wife’s DIY and they seem to work great. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12236 April 6, 2012 at 11:00 am #654634 plastafara 56 Posts I give try, I am TIG welding stainless steel every day in my workshop so I’ll order the SS ones and try to make a bracket for them witch hold bought parts and avoid folding.

Still it’s best if they overlapped like the kk or any other hook system. Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
