Sure, any real supply house will have a good selection of channel nuts
plus all of the other helpful hardware/clamps/accessories you can buy to
use with Unistrut or whatever manufacturer is popular in your area.
Why does the catalog page say:
"For best results use M 12 size"
If there are various sizes for various applications, how would they
know that the M 12 size will give the best results?
Why would they even sell alternatives that *won't* give the best
If what you are attaching can't accommodate an M 12 bolt, then the M
12 size won't give you the "best result".
That was basically the point of my question.
If your explanation is correct (and I have no reason to doubt it) then
the wording should be:
"For the best results, use the largest thread size that will work for
Selecting a specific size without knowing the given application and
saying that it will give the "best result" is misleading and confusing.

I don't get it. How do these channel nuts work? Do they stick
somehow to the understide of the floor?...
I think I get it now, but how did it help with your bus? It had rods
or soemthing going across the bottom to hold the nuts?
What are those channels on each side and how do they help them stick?
What could the spring do?
Any or all of that is appreciated.
You use them in channel (hence "channel nut"):
The nuts go anywhere into the channel, then you turn them clockwise
about 80 degrees. The spring holds the nut at the top of the channel.
The grooves in the nut catch the edges at the top of the channel so the
nut won't turn.
There are channels on each wall and in the floor on each side. They
are lower profile (rectangular rather than square).
We have double seats on the left and single on the right. What I had
to do is remove one of the doubles and add a jump seat and put another
single on the right.
Hope this makes sense.
Any electrical supply house in the U.S. stocks them but not
necessarily in metric sizes. The smaller sizes are used in
data cabinets and should be available through supply houses
that cater to network and telecom infrastructure installers.
The last 19" rack panel cabinet I assembled used a lot of
the small spring nuts in sizes like 10/32 in 1/2" channel.
