I agree with sandjunkie, but an apology is an apology and that is going in the right direction. If you guys are really able to put together a group buy on here with one of your distributors, I think it would go even further.

I apologize if you guys took it the wrong way. Just trying to inform everyone before they get to involved or order to much of lights they cant sell.

If people are interested in a group buy please post on here with the sizes you are interested so i can get an idea and send it over to one of our dealers i use for group buys. Thanks guys

We fully support the little guys thats how Rigid was started in a 1200 sq ft building. You have to start some where. There is plenty of room for competition in this industry. Our lights lean to the more higher end of the market, there is cheaper choices and more expensive, its all personal preference. We just try and protect our product.

If anyone took my previous posts the wrong way i apologize. I just wanted to put out a mass message to everyone.

I will see what i can do about a group buy. We are the manufacture so offering a group buy could be difficult but i will talk to a few dealers that are on TW and see what they would like to do. What kind size bars is everyone looking for so i have an idea before i talk with them? D2s? Sr-series

Thanks guys,
Wish you guys could build some gutter roof mounts for us. Something like this. http://www.gotshocker.com/product.php?productid=17196. I would buy a set right now.

Thanks,

Well if they built something like that, then they are hypocrites, because they are copyings someones style and design..

But then Dan says he will put in a word to try and have that made...

Why not buy the one you posted a link to...

Also if Dan would tell us if they manufacture the housing yourself, because I think the housings come from overseas.. and they assemble everything here...

Also everyone saying that Chinese crap is garbage, maybe some but look at your iPhone's and LCD the and nearly all your appliances are made there..I wish those plants would come back, but its not gonna happen...

I have never seen any big company troll boards and try to threaten the buyers..go after the companies manufacturing the stuff...you see apple posting on forums and threating people buying Samsung products...if your that big why worry bout what's going on in forums...

why not just buy the ones you linked? or talk to a local welding shop about building a set?

As Consumers what Legal problems would be encountered?
Is rigid the sole proprietor of said patent(s) or are you only buying rights to another entities patent(s)?

Quick search netted below:

Apparently, this patent has a "wide" IP for application, it seems the filling company/assignees were:
