The HJ-17 is a black metal joint set that allows you to create a two-pipe intersection with a 45-degree non-adjustable angle. This joint set is used for reinforcing structures. Unlike the HJ-6 / HJ-6A / HJ-14, the HJ-17 has nos adjustable angle. This feature makes it particularly useful for individual reinforcement situations.
This joint set is composed of only a few parts, which makes its installation very fast. In addition, this feature helps strengthen the structure, and even helps it to increase the 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.
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.
See the installation steps tab to view how to assemble this connector.

2-Take a connector H-17 and a connector H-18 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-17 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-17 attached firmly to the two pipes . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
