Window Stone Guard

My Trillium Jubilee came without a stone guard and I want to make one or have one made. I would appreciate someone taking some pics of a good one. Close up of how it is attached to the trailer and how the mechanism works etc.. Are there aluminum angle pieces on top where the piano hinge is? How is it secured when down?
I have a sign company client that says they can make me one if I know what I want..
Thanks for any help

Wayne

Thanks Donna

Those links helped.. I'm not sure but I think I might use some sort of piano hinge instead of the original channel with a screw in it.. Just need to figure out how to mount it.. Might use gas shocks instead of the aluminum channel and wing nut to hold it up.. Then I have to figure out a securing method for when traveling. It's all starting to come together in my head.. now I have to actually make it happen..

This would be great.. Do you have a price in mind of what it would cost us?

As I recall from looking a various photos of stone guards for one of them the piece on the wall of the trailer was a widely available awning extrusion. Then they used an interface extrusion that slid into that channel. Because it is a rounded shape it acted as a hinge. They did put stop screws into each end to keep it from sliding sideways.

A hinge knuckle from a hinge that was taken apart is one potential interface piece coming from the frame of the stone guard that could fit into the awning extrusion channel. There are hinges made with removable pins that can be in hardware stores. They are sometimes called loose joint hinges. There are also lift off hinges. All of those would work as they provide a knuckle at the end of a flange with holes drilled into it. You can get them in stainless steel.

This is a very simple solution using widely available parts. Not my invention, I am just reporting on how I saw it done.
