Bar Holders

Our bar holders are constructed from a polished strip of durable brass with recessed areas specifically designed to fit the commendation award bars. The alignment bars also have holes to accomodate the pinette needles on the award bars.

The commendation bars can easily be mounted in the holders in a semi-permanent way with either a drop of epoxy or a narrow strip of double-sided tape. Research shows that a drop or two of 2-part epoxy glue works best.

To better serve you, we now have available both 2-wide and 3-wide configurations to fit everything from 2 to 9 commendation bars. All of them are shown below:

Stock Commendation Bars Information

All of our bars are made in America, die-struck in jewelers brass, enamel-filled and protected by an epoxy dome. Bars are individually bagged to help ensure quality upon receipt by customer.

Please be aware that the size and color you see onscreen may not match actual product due to the fact that all monitors are different. The actual size of the bars is 1 3/8" x 3/8". The images you see are computer drawings of the bars, which enables you to see the detail of the bars in utmost clarity. This is done because the epoxy dome on the bars creates a glare during the scanning process.

The Q816, R117, S118 and other similar bars are stocked in the following numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 thru 40 in 5-year increments.

The Shooting Bars (J209 - J609) are all available in either green or navy.

The Q216, Q226, Q236 & Q246 are also available in navy w/gold stars.

Various other bars are available in colors that aren’t shown here. Just ask!

Specially Designed Commendation Bars

Customized commendation bars are sometimes required.

Sometimes this involves simply changing the color scheme of an existing stock item. This is the easiest way to make a custom bar for your department, and it involves only a minimum first order of 50 bars. Once the first order has been placed, subsequent orders may be of any quantity. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of custom-colored bars.

The U140 was designed to allow for easy customization without a die charge. Up to 4 letters/numbers may be engraved in the center oval and color schemes changed with a minimum order of 25 bars.

*Please also note that there is an up-charge of $1.00 per character engraved.*

There are times when the stock designs will not fit a particular need. It is then that a new die will need to be designed and created. New dies of the same size as our stock bars are approximately $400.00 and require a minimum first order of 100 bars. Please allow up to 8 weeks for delivery of these specially designed bars.
