The HJ-6 is a black metal joint set that allows you to create a two-pipe intersection with an adjustable angle. This joint set is used in many applications to create an opening or bracing.
This joint set will create a distance of an inch between the two pipes. This distance is used for supporting pannels or manufacturing parts. It is also possible to use the HJ-6 to create a door or a folding table hinge. Before considering the HJ-6, we suggest thinking of using other joint sets: HJ-12 or HJ-23
This joint set is designed with 8 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes.

Antistatic Version (ESD):
An electric conductivity version if offered if you wish to build antistatic structures: HJ-6NP

- Ensure you have the following parts:
- 2x H-5
- 2x H-6
- 2x M6-25B bolts
- 2x M6-N nuts
- 2x 28mm pipes of your choice
- 1x T-HANDLE 5mm hex key
- Take the two H-6 connectors and group them around the first pipe.
- Fix the connectors by placing an M6-25B bolt with an M6-N nut in the corresponding openings until it's firmly attached to the pipe. A force between 12-14 Nm is recommended for this step. Make sure to place the bolts on the most accessible side.
- Group together the two H-5 connectors around the second pipe and insert the first pipe with the attached H-6's. Loosely tighten with the remaining M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut through both H-5 and H-6.
- Position into the desired angle and tighten completely until the HJ-6 joint set if firmly attached to the two pipes. A force between 12-14 Nm is recommended for this step.
