Product Description

Hybrid Tongue & Groove Extrusion. Mates with itself. Operates on a “mirror image” concept, almost like two W’s coming together when the lid closes. This not only provides for a much tighter lid closure, but is also a great benefit if you should make a bad cut. This way you don’t end up running short of either the separate tongue or groove.  One Hybrid extrusion plays the part of two traditional separate tongue & groove sections. If you have any questions regarding how this functions after taking a look at it, please refer to the FlexiCase Design Tool documents entitled "Hybrid Tongue & Groove Explained" and "Standard Split-Dish Twist Latch Cutout", or contact us, or see our video tutorial on hybrids

ALWAYS do a test fit with your sticks to familiarize yourself with how they mate before cutting.

NOTE: Even though the legs are a different length when you look at the cutaway, once the lid is closed, the design provides for an equal dimension of exposed extrusion on either side of the closure seam.

Having difficulty determining how much Hybrid T & G you need? The formula is easy and as follows:

Determine the total perimeter distance (circumference) of your case opening by adding up the length of each 4 sides that make up the case opening and multiply by 2

Example: If you have a trunk style case that is 40" side to side and 20" front to back, your formula would be: 40+40+20+20 = 120 x 2 = 240

So, 240" (which is 20 ft., which is 3 sticks) minumum amount of of Hybrid T & G required. But as we always recommend, it's always a good idea to purchase a little more than needed for unforseen errors. Better to have that extra stick than to run short in the middle of our project, or if you make a bad cut.

Rivets Required For Installation: Varies depending on length of section used, as well as associated parts that may be riveted through it.

Depending on your case design some rivets may require backing washers. Most rivets will install through the interior leg of the extrusion and therefore require no backing washers.

RECOMMENDED USES:
All Cases utilizing 1/2" wall panels.

MINIMUM RECOMMENDED CASE DIMENSIONS:
Typically, cases 400 pounds or less and, or, with an overal dimension of 180 inches or less (width + depth + height)
