    Looks like it's not available in california and not for online purchase. (it must be made from some baby killing toxic plastic material :-)

    I am sure there is some sort of F Channel available in CA. Try checking with a real building supply company. There are lots of things out there that HD and Lowes do not sell.

    I like those clips, I wish I would have seen that years ago. I am not keen on they permanent mounting though.

    I made some hooks by re-bending some 1/4-20 eye hooks into a long hook. It worked this year but I am not happy with it. I spoke to someone else who has pvc frmaes around their windows, can not remember who right now, but they used short pieces of J Channel screwed to the pvc frame in an upside down fashion. This provided a "hook" of sorts. I am going to try that idea once the lights turn off.
    Thanks,

    hey brian, what's the ID of that channel you're using? do you think it would fit pixabulbs? (0.94")

    I believe the F Channel ID id 1/2". It fits the square pixels nice and snug. I do not have any pixabulbs but if they are .93" wide then they will not fit inside the F Channel I used.

    I like the upside down J-Trim hooks. Here's the link
