The 2 hole - straight flat plate is an external fastening method that requires no machining services. It is a durable connection that can be easily repositioned and reused. This flat plate can provide infinite positioning along the profile T-slot, allowing for a large degree of adjustability. It engages the 2-degree drop-lock feature for most profile series when the assembly bolts are tightened to the required torque, creating a strong connection. The suggested mounting hardware for the 2 hole - straight flat plate can be found on the "Suggested Hardware" tab. Tip: Pre-load your hardware prior to connecting profiles to simplify your assembly and save time.
