Cannot find extra expansion cradle / slides - Sun Temp

rodney23 Member Posts: 1
I have Sun Temp (SunTemp?) hydronic baseboard heaters. After some recent work done with a leak, I noticed many missing or damaged expansion cradles (or slides). I've looked for replacements on-line, and the only ones I can find anywhere are from Slant-fin on the supplyhouse web site. The fins on the units I have are 2.5" deep. Looking for other sources for the slides or other ideas of what to use. Thanks!

    clip some from a plastic milk container? The slides just need to insulate the fin from any metal bracket. They don't really need to lock into the fin.

    Sun Temp is a brand made by

    Meztek..Located in Westfield Ma 01085.

    If you call customer service they will know which series you have. I have the 700 series sun temp. Same problem.
    If your covers say sun temp on them most liij kely they are 700 series.

    they will not sell to you but will sell to a supplier which they can provide names of in your area, then to you.

    United plumbing in springfield MA can get then in 2 days from Meztek at $1.30 a piece plus handling.

    I have 24 extra if you cant get them.
