The HJ-23 is a black metal joint set generally used to reinforce the structure's capacity. This joint set is very similar to the HJ-13, with the only difference that it includes a hinge bracket that allows it to rotate over an opening radius of almost 360 degrees, depending on your structure configuration.
This joint set is frequently used for the assembly of folding tables, doors or on any other structures requiring a moving part. Due to the hinge bracket, we recommend using an AO-SHIM plastic shim to prevent the connector from sliding on the pipe. Consider the HJ-12 if you need similar applications of the HJ-23, but with two perpendicular tubes.
See the installation steps tab to view how to assemble this connector.
Antistatic Version (ESD):
An electric conductivity version if offered if you wish to build antistatic structures: HJ-23NP

1- Make sure you have the following parts:
2 28mm pipes of your choice
1 Allen key or one drill equipped with an Allen Key 5mm tip
2- Take two AP-HINGE and press them on the P1 and P2 pipes until the hinge are fix. 3- Take two connectors H-23 and group them around the both AP-HINGE.
4-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.
5- Tighten completely the M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut together until the HJ-23 attached firmly to hinge . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
