Acrylic French Cleats in Use

So these are images of cleats in use:
I couldn't show you a piece hung on the cleat, but trust me, they fit together perfectly and gravity keeps the glass from going anywhere.
You just can't easily jostle a piece hung from a cleat.
Side view on the wall


Front view of the wall half attached (sorry for the lack of focus)



This is a view from the side of a cleat attached to a piece



And this is a view head on of the cleat attached to the piece.

These French cleats look great makes for a very nice unobtrusive way to hang glass panels.
If you want to clean the sawn edges, use 600 grit wet and dry sandpaper attached to a flat surface (example plate glass) and sand out the saw marks then with a cloth buffing wheel and white stick abrasive polish the sanded edges.
Cheers,

Barbara,
I learned about these from you in STeve Klein's class and have used them several times. THanks for sharing this information.

How do you attach the French Cleat to the back of the artwork?
Glue - what type?

Is it acrylic attached to another piece of acrylic?

Any other advice here?


Thank you, Shirley

This is just what I need! Is anybody selling these now? I don't have the quipment to saw the small pieces of acrylic to make cleats so would be thrilled to buy some already made.
