The S-5-U clamp is by far our most popular and most versatile clamp. It will fit about 85% of the standing seam profiles manufactured in North America including most structural and architectural profiles. It can be used on vertically oriented seams, and by rotating the clamp 90 degrees, it can also be used on most horizontal 2 seam profiles. Its simple design, generous dimensioning and multiple hole orientations are what make it so versatile for use with S-5!® snow retention products and other heavy-duty applications.
