Hydronic baseboard missing hangers for inside return?

Homeowner troubleshooting nosiy hydronic baseboard installed new 7 years ago. Noise is pings that i am assuming is rubbing of the fins. Removed cover and noticed return line sitting on top of fins, looks like there's a cutout for hangers to support.

So first question, is my theory of missing hangers causing noise probable?

Second question, can someone help identify the brand system i have and where i can order the hangers?

Thank you!

What I did with mine was use a piece of solid copper wire to hold the pipe off the fins.

Thanks Grady, I was debating a solution like that too, and I may go do that. Seemed like pre-made hangers should be cheap and easier to install rather than twisting a bunch of wire.

Don't know that I've ever seen brackets for that application.

Yes the return pipe sitting on top of the fins with missing hangers might make added noise.

Lengths of wire can looped through the holes in the bracket that holds up the full length adjustable louver and hold up the return pipe. Superficially I would consider this quicker, easier, and cheaper than researching and then shopping for official brackets that hold up the pipe.
