Cross hinge joint set
- Great for sliding or swiveling mechanisms
- Great for doors and drop-down extensions
- Great for adjustable mechanisms
The HJ-24 is a black metal joint set that allows you to create a swivel three-pipe intersection on two axes.
This joint set is designed with 8 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes.
If your structure doesn't require a swivel joint, we recommend that you use the HJ-4, because it will not weaken your structure's capacity. This joint set is very similar to the HJ-24 with the only difference that is doesn't have a hinge bracket.
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-24NP

- Ensure you have the following parts:
- Press the AP-HINGE bracket on the first pipe until it clips on, place the opening of the bracket inside of the pipe.
- Group the two H-24 connectors around the first and the second pipe. Make sure that the AP-HINGE bracket teeth fit into the corresponding openings.
- Fix the connectors together by placing the M6-25B bolts with the M6-N nuts in the corresponding openings, and loosely tighten. Make sure to place the bolts on the most accessible side.
- Insert the second and the third pipes in both of the remaining openings of the HJ-24, between the first and the second positioning guidelines.
- Tighten completely until the HJ-24 joint set is firmly attached to the three pipes. A force between 12-14 Nm is recommended for this step.
- If the HJ-24 feels too tight to rotate, apply a lubricant spray to ease the mobility of the AP-HINGE bracket and to avoid damaging the plastic teeth.
