I used a magnetic clamp to hold the strapping into the screw for welding

You will need to drill a hole in the strapping and also cut a slot in the RHS.

To remove the clamps after welding simply loosen the clamps and slide out the keeper and the clamp will slide back through the slot

Use them together to hold panels in place

I used my TIG to weld these but a mig or gas turned down low will work equally as well
