That is a good question. There are no commercial products available to do this with as I"ve checked into it. I've experienced the same issue with low metal roofs on cattle mineral feeders. What I've done is to take a treated 2x4, and attach it laterally to the end of the tin (on the underneath side) with the 2x4 extending out past the end by about 1.5 inches. I use a wood router to round the two exposed edges as well as the ends. This does not prevent someone from bumping their head, but it sure beats a cut. It works.

Hmm, how about a combo of those two ideas. If I used the J channel and slid a 1 x 3 treated into the channel and then bolted it with carriage bolts to the underside of the tin edge, would be more solid yes ?

That would work as well. With the carriage bolts sticking out from the underneath side, this would still be a concern for someone to run their head into. With the 2x4, I used the same roofing screws making sure they did not protrude through the 2x4.

Correct, but I think I would cut the ends off and grind them rounded. Thanks for the ideas gentlemen !
