    If you do happen to use canes, cut them a few mm longer than the sheets (so 2ft+) then put them in the channels at a slight angle & slide them level to give a tight fit........hope that makes sense.

    Its hard, but it is possible to get a panel back in without dismantling the greenhouse, 5 minutes after finishing my greenhouse, the dog decided to go down the gap between the shed and greenhouse, and on reversing he knocked out a panel with his fat ass, took two of us to get the panel back in, and I have since ran a bead of silicone on top/bottom of each panel, seems to hold them in alot better, stops them flexing

    Whatever you can lay your hands on Mick, just cut them to size.

    Dow Corning glazing silicone on mine and touch wood haven't lost a panel yet and its gone through 3 winters. As an added benefit it also stops any water getting into the glazing channels thereby preventing corrosion.

    Was tricky, and there was a few swear words, but I really didn't want to dismantle it
