Flat Sliderbars from Arlington

February 13, 2023

Here’s the easy, NEAT way to mount single or two gang boxes between wood or metal studs. Arlington’s steel SliderBar™ looks great and saves about 20 minutes per box over cutting, nailing and placing extra 2x4s. The bracket works with almost any metal box. And if you need to add another box to SliderBar, use our SL18BKT mounting bracket.
