    Thanks - good to know that it can be done. The postage for ~£10 of goods is ~£25, so of course I'd like to avoid it :) . Still, definitely an option.

    Many thanks Mack47 - great to know that there's somewhere where I might get them. I'll give it a go tomorrow.

    They would probably work and, by the look of it, pull the mirror in tighter on the wall. However, I'd need to put lots up to make sure the load was spread and they'd be a git to "hit" with the other connector.

    I tried B&Q (a huge warehouse one) today but no joy. Likewise Wickes. The best UK-based solution I've come across so far is to use two cabinet hanging rails (one upside down).

    EDIT: Just saw the price. At £62 I could order those steel cleats from the US for less :) .

    Can you not make your own split batten?

    A light engineering co could knock these up. 2 lengths of 50mm by 2mm strap in a bending machine. No problems.

    have you tried a local wrought iron railings company/ one man band? they should be able to source and bend the metal no bother.
