The way I have done it is with cable ties, couldn't work out a way to do it with the connectors :(

So when you over lap them, does not each end of the overlap give you enough to fit a connector?
I have only done it with cable ties.

not sure. i'm not good at imagining things in my head! i'll have to try and find the spare grids i have and test it out. i couldn't think how it'd work without the middle grids sagging, and that would drive me insane! i'd have to have the perfectly straight :roll:

I don't think you can connect overlapping grids with connectors because the bars in the middle of the grids are thinner than the frame.. Connectors are made to fit the frame and would be loose on the bars in the middle. You have to use cable ties which can be tightened.

it's annoying because without the connectors it's not as rigid as i would like. i'll have to have a think about it all. i'm a nightmare with things being perfectly straight and in line. :nod:

If its on the ground i suggest using cable ties and adding something underneath where the grids then sag (I dot know if I'm making sense xD) so it doesnt sag
