This doesn't apply to the smaller kits on closeout.
I couldn't care less about what they are made for, but each kit contains a piece of 1/4" x 4" x 5' piece of high quality aluminum plate. To buy the aluminum would cost about $30 to $40 retail and the kits were on closeout for $1.07 each. I bought all I could find in my area and all I wanted was the aluminum so if anyone wants the plastic strips I just need a little something for my time and then shipping.
The kits are so you can cut off the nailing strips and mount the windows closer together.
If you happen to weld or can use the aluminum somehow it's one hell of a buy if there are any left! You can even call ahead and ask if they have that item number in stock (Item #92957).
