The HJ-12 is a black metal joint set that rotates 360 degrees. Very similar to the HJ-1, the HJ-12 allows a rotation once this connector is fixed.
This joint set is frequently used to create doors, movable separators and foldable shelves. Psst! If you don't need this joint set to be mobile, the HJ-1 may be a better fit for your needs.
This joint set is designed with 4 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes. It also includes 2 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.
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-12NP

2- Take a AP-Hinge and press it on the pipe P1 until the hinge is fix.
3-Take two connectors H-12 and group them around the 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 the M6-25B bolt and nut M6-N together a few threads , but no more.
6- Insert the P2 pipe within the HJ-12 between the first and second guides as shown in the plan .
7- Tighten completely the M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut together until the HJ- 12 attached firmly to the AP-HINGE and the pipe P2 . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
Use without the AP-HINGE when space is limited and you need to overlap two joints.
