Packout Rail Bar Clip

Packout Rail Bar Clip for Battery Holder

Description

This clip is designed to slip over the rail on my 2″ Packout rail mount bar to make it even more versatile. the open gap on the bottom with the ramped edges makes it easy to slide the clip onto the bar, but difficult to take it off unless you pry apart the sides of the clip.

I show several examples of what can be attached to the clip in the gallery. For instance the Makita battery holder I’m using is designed by Matt2000. You can find it on Thingiverse under the title: “Makita 18V Battery Holder For 1″ Pegboard” or it’s thing 2896442.

Other examples include connecting my flashlight/toolholder clip or my spring clip.

I’ve included the customizable model where you can change size of the clip and the hole pattern and spacing. I’ve also included STL files for a wide clip with 4 holes in a 1″ grid and a narrow clip with 2 holes spaced 1″ vertically apart.
