Default roof rack gutter mounts - recommendations? source?

Anyone know of a good source for quality gutter mounts for diy roof racks? I like the Conn-Fer ones, so something similar? Sorry for the poor focus, but you know what I'm talking about... where to get more of these?

Done! And there may be a market for these, after some additional searching yesterday I learned that SOR just raised the price on their "Quick and Easy" clamps...

go to checker or autozone or whatever, and get a set of van ladder racks. either cut of or leave the bar that holds them. something like 54.99 for a pair (four feet)

I have made my own before, with .125 plate, (4"x4") , a piece of .75 rect tube (2.5" long) some all thread and some .5" angle.

you center the tube on the plate and weld in place, and weld the angle to the allthread. Put the clamp (allthread) through the tube, and place a nut and washer on the allthread.

viola. done

or go to checker for less money and time
