The HJ-1 is a black metal joint set that allows you to connect two 28 mm pipes in a T-shape or to create a corner. You can rotate this connector up to 360-degree before fixing it to make 45- or 90-degree support for surfaces or just for supporting your products.
This connector was designed for a quick and easy installation. This piece is the simplest to assemble and the most commonly used in the entire Flexpipe system. Applications for this connector are numerous; from corners to separations, pegs, 45-degree supports and supports for accessories like the AW-HOLDER. To assemble an HJ-1 you need to put two H-1 together with an M6-25B bolt and an M6-N nut. You should always keep a box of these three parts in inventory since they are going to be used in 95% of your Flexpipe structures.
This joint set is designed with 8 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes. It also includes 4 additional pre-drilled reinforcement holes to ensure extra strength to your structure. By adding a self-drilling screw F-A85/8, you will solidify the connector joints positioned on a corner where there is a higher risk of impact.

2- Take two connectors H-1 and group them around the P1 pipe.
3- Take a M6-25B bolt and a M6-N nut and insert them into the corresponding openings. Make sure to put the bolt on the more accessible side.
4- Tighten the M6-25B bolt and nut M6-N together a few threads , but no more.
5-Insert the P2 pipe within the HJ-1 between the first and second guides as shown in the plan.
6- Tighten completely the M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut together until the HJ- 1 attached firmly to the two pipes . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
