Pannier mounting Hardware

Ok so I took the plunge and got a set of 1550 pelican cases. I have a plan to use a channel and screws with knobs to mount them. I have seen a retailer that sells just those items of hardware and I was sure I had bookmarked them.

Well duh, I cannot find the bookmark or even search up the retailer on the forum. So I am looking for the source now.

This is the kind of thing i am looking for

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Those channels are not aluminum but rather are plastic. Work good. Used them on a set of mermite cans. My only caution to you is that using those knobs inside the box make it very inconvenient to remove them for an overnight stay in a motel. I have Pelicans that I made removable. Still working on some kind of lock system but am having problems sourcing them.

How did you mount yours? Pictures of your set up would be great!

Thanks in advance for you help with my mounting issues... I too think the knobs on the inside is a bad idea. I was thinking about put some screws on the inside and putting the knobs on the outside with some kind of pin to secure the knob for some theft protection...
