Flex-A-Rail is a great awning track for twisting around corners. Made of extruded PVC, this rail track can be bent using steam heat or a heat gun, if necessary. It is also easy to cut with a hacksaw and can be shaped with a dremel tool. Pair this awning track with a keder or vinyl awning rope which provides a great seal. Attach the awning rope to fabric or to a zipper and pull through the groove in the awning track. Shipping will be increased based on the length of this item, in order to reduce shipping cost consider ordering the 44" track (part #120147).
To Install: Drill holes every 4–12 inches through the center of the track with at least one hole next to each end of the track. Screw down the track to secure.
Please Note: Installation screws are not included. This Flex-A-Rail requires specific screws: Screw Flat Head #4 x #6 x 3/4". These screws will not inhibit the Flex-A-Rail from working properly as they fit flush within the track.
Sailrite Pro Tip: Using this Flex-A-Rail track with an awning rope fits very snugly and is hard to work around a corner with a radius tighter than 10-inches.

Black Flex-A-Rail track
We use the black and white Flex-A-Rails for our dinghy/canoe sponsons so we can match colors. The tracks are attached to the sides of the boat, under the gunwale, then the sponsons simply slide into place with Keder Awning Rope. The Flex-A-Rails conform easily to the curve of the shear and boat, their big advantage over some of the other tracks. The Keder rope slides easily. The Flex-A-Rails are sensitive to the size of the fastener, they must be #6 screws so the Keder rope will have enough room. Having used the white ones for years with no UV problems, we expect the same from the black, probably better.
Great for what I need but I ruined one piece trying to bend it, not as easy as it looks
