The HJ-13 is a black metal joint set generally used to reinforce the structure's capacity.
This joint set is frequently used for the assembly of workstation, rack or cart requiring a high load capacity. For more information on the different ways to increase your structure's loading capacity, read our article How to calculate the loading capacity for modular structures.
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-13NP

2- Take two connectors H-13 and group them around the pipes P1 and P2.
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 completely the M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut together until the HJ- 13 attached firmly to both pipes . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
