Top Mount Solar Panel Brackets 

Easily mount your solar panels to the top of your 8020 or Unistrut roof rack.

Our Top Mount Solar Panel Brackets allow you to easily bolt your solar panel down to the top of your 8020 or Unistrut roof rack.  If your solar panels are too large to nest down into your roof rack using our flush mount solar panel brackets then our Top Mount Brackets have you covered.  These sturdy brackets are laser out of 16 Gage Stainless Steel which will give you a secure corrosion resistant mounting surface that will not only outlast your solar panels but probably your van.  The slotted hardware locations in each bracket help compensate for different solar panel sizes as well as for any tolerance stack up that may occur while you are building your roof rack.  

Our brackets are specifically designed for easy installation with 8020 or Uni-Strut roof racks.  With these brackets you can bolt your solar panel to your bracket, lower your panel onto your cross bars, and easily tighten the hardware from the top.  Most other mounting options require you to bolt your panel to your brackets and your cross bars first which creates a heavy bulky assembly.  This process gets complicated and cumbersome once you have more than one solar panel and often requires you to build your rack first and then lower it onto your roof.  Our brackets eliminate those issues and offer a hassle-free installation.  Do not waste your time or money with any other solar panel mounting brackets if you plan to install them on an 8020 or a Uni-Strut rack.  You will be left trying to modify them or with having to install your solar panels to your rack before you install it on your van.

As always if you have any questions about how to use these brackets, how to install them, common configurations, which hardware length to use with these brackets for your project let us know.  We are here to help!

  1. We recommend adding some Blue 242 Loctite to the threads of your bolts when you do the final installation.  Even though we do not expect any, we recommend that you periodically check the hardware to ensure that nothing has loosened over time.
