Where to get channel molding?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am in the process of cable management and need some molding to line the holes I cut for the cords as well as for the window hole I made.
Do you guys now where I can buy locally and what I ask for? Where did you guys purchase your window molding at. I don't want to purchase online if possibly but if I do I will get the mnpctech u-channel.

I tried loews and home depot but they are idiots and have no clue what I am talking about and just have me running all over the store going to each department.

its sometimes called door edge molding. NAPA, any place that sells auto parts. Even Wal-Mart should have some.

Local Auto shop- AutoZone or whatever; look for "door edge trim/moulding" Comes in packets of like 3-4 foot sections, different thicknesses/widths etc.

if you end up ordering online I suggest McMaster-Carr.com
mnpctech buys theirs from mcmaster, and you have a bunch of shapes, sizes, and base materials to choose from - not to mention its cheaper, ships faster, and only a few bucks for shipping as opposed to the 18.99 from mnpctech. I like mnpctech's stuff but that shipping is ridiculous. I will only use them from now on for stuff I cant get anywhere else.

Mcmaster ships from NJ so I get my packages within a day or two, for a few dollars shipping, and it turns out arctic.mod is 8 miles from my house and a mile from my work, I emailed asking them if they do walk-in pick ups on web orders, still waiting to hear back.

I use neoprene, non marking c-channel. mcmaster starts minimum lengths at 10 feet

You can make your own by splitting tubing as I have done here on one of my old cases.
