I know another question but I think it is different. I talked to Proffitt's today about which one to get and looked on lab's site as well for a 7" flat arm for theirs. I was told by Proffitt's to go with borgeson's 806018 but looking at Borg's site they have ones that are bendable and flat steel. What is the difference? What makes it able to be bent modified? Is one better than the other?

Thanks,

Got it answered. Non bendable ones are made in China where as the bendable ones are American made and water jet cut. 1" thick, BTW...

why not use the one that comes with your box? i am.
of course, mine is a junkyard box with a flat arm. maybe it does not apply.
