The HJ-23 is a double hinge joint that makes two parallel pipes around each other. This connector is mostly used to build folding tables, doors, and other movable modules with an almost full 360-degree radius. This range can be reduced quickly by obstructive pipes. Be sure to plan your design to take advantage of the full radius capacity or to enable just a specific range of the hinges.
Even if the HJ-23 allows you to build similar modules to the ones using the HJ-12, the circumstances of application for the two is not the same. The fact that one allows the rotation of parallel pipes and the other of perpendicular pipes makes them useful in very different setups. Like the HJ-12, this joint will slide on the two pipes if you don't immobilize them. Sliding the H-23 is sometimes a good thing but may not always be what you want. We recommend that you check the tips and tricks section of this product page to learn how to immobilize the connector and when to do so.
To assemble an HJ-23, you need to assemble two H-23 around an AP-HINGE with one M6-25B bolt and one M6-N nut.

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.
