Trying to figure out what this type of bracket style would be called? I need something similar, but a little bit different:

I suspect it would be named after its function.

Obviously. But I'm not going to pay $10 each for one of those and then cut it up to make it fit what I need. That was just the only example I could find and that doesn't really tell you what the actual term is for the part. I would call it a press clamp or something but that didn't yield any results.

Edit: Found this: [www.amazon.com]

Which I should be able to cut and drill a hole in and make work. Still wondering if there is a name for that type of fastener as I'd rather just order a box of them than fab them up.

This might work if you're going to 'roll your own'.
1/2 in. x 1 in. x 36 in. Plain C-Channel (1/8" thick hot rolled steel)
$10 @ HomeDepot

Find an electrician that can give you some extra pieces of punched strut channel.

I looked at the unistrut at Menards. A bit to big and bulky for what I need. The 1" wide and 1/2" tall is closer to the size I need.

That would work, but shows 7 days out for delivery to my store.

or this (18-pack):

and throw away everything you don't need?

if you could live with .3" deep, a piece of DIN rail would work (if it is structurally strong enough).

That’s a carriage bolt in the OP photo. Working with the square hole in the plate, it:
1. Allows for tightening down from just the nut side; no need to hold/access the bolt head
2. Bolt head is smooth, rounded, and has no slot for a screwdriver, which means it cannot be removed (easily nor quickly) by any unauthorized person who only has access to the bolt-head side of the attachment.

Yep. That is the part I don't need. A circular hole is fine for my needs. I think I'll either order the Home Depot 1/2 in. x 1 in. x 36 in. Plain C-Channel for delivery in a week or drive the 60 miles to the closest store to get it if I have time.

I think the best you can do is call it a retaining bracket, unless it is used exclusively by a particular manufacturer for a particular product.

Retainers and brackets come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and trying to single out that one or a similar one just buy description is an impossible task.

You can search for Steel brackets or channel brackets or something else you can conjure up, but the chance of finding what you want is slim or none, and slim just left town.

Maybe search a Grainger catalogue?

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
