Carpentry Question

You know those little feet that you put at the bottom of a panel to hold it in on the lip of the wall you are setting the panel in?

What are they called? I am having trouble googling them for purchase.

I think I'd call that a wedge

Re: Carpentry Question

Ahhh, the wedge, the simplest tool. I used to know a guy we called that name.

Re: Carpentry Question

I think I'd call it a cleat but I don't think you can buy them. I just make them when ever I need them. Someone with a table saw and a dado blade could make you some in five minutes. I have several panels on my boat hung with versions of that.
