Q: For the InfraRed Rail System™, why do you only include the technical data, links, and shopping list, instead of the actual parts?
A: Two reasons: Even at local hardware stores, most of the InfraRed Rail System™ parts are only available as online, as they are large and oversized. You have two options:
1) ship to store/pickup, or
2) ship direct to your home/front doorstep.
Being larger items, it is much more economical for you to buy those few parts online, save the markup, and save on additional packaging/shipping charges. It’s a Win-Win, cut out the middle-man, and keeps the price below comparable Accessory Kits!
