The Wirelock is the most cost effective with an all aluminum base and stainless steel wiggle wire locking inserts. This extrusion can accept multiple layers of coverings all in the same base.
Snaplock consists of top and bottom, all aluminum extrusions (no plastic parts) and snaps on easily and securely without clips.
