Adding bolts to HFGH or any with glazing bars

I joined 2 10x12 HFGH's. I added extra slot bolts to the rear GH but didn't think I would use them in the front greenhouse. Adding shelving greatly stiffened the rear greenhouse side walls. So I decided to add shelving to the front one. To add slot bolts get yourself one of these metal grinding thingys.

Cut a hole carefully in the glazing bar.

Put the slot bolts into the shelf brace and slide it into the glazing bar.

Use fender washers to bolt the shelving on.

The added shelving greatly stiffens the side walls while increase space for plants.
