Thanks !
Came across your post figured I would show you what I did to block some of the sun and heat from my shower skylight. For my application I made two C channels out of galvanized, 18" long by 1-1/2" x 3/4" x 1-1/2". Removed the end screws on the skylight frame (2) and loosened the next two - slide the C channel under end of skylight frame and mark the bottom of C channel for each hole (Done for both ends) then remove.
Drill all four holes big enough to fit the head of the screw through. Place both C channels back under skylight ends and drill only through metal. Remove and paint. Next I purchased a clear piece of plexiglass 18" x 24" from Home depot for $22.00, I had from another project Gila smoke static cling window tint that I applied to one side of clear plexiglass. Can apply to both sides if you like it darker. I went to advance auto to purchase four plastic body caps - (Painted as shown in photo)
Place and mount both C channels with original screws, cut ends off of body caps and crazy glue to cover each hole on bottom of C channel. Slide tinted plexiglass down both channels and placed a 24-3/8" long x 1-1/2" x 5/8"( Your measurements may differ) painted galvanized angle between plexiglass and C channel to finish it off.
It cut the amount of sun light and heat coming in from the skylight and it is easy to remove for cleaning or if you want the heat from the sun back in. Photos below
PS: End cap not on waiting for paint to dry
