The HJ-6 is a black metal joint set that allows you to create a two-pipe intersection with an adjustable angle. This joint set is used in many applications to create an opening or bracing.
This joint set will create a distance of an inch between the two pipes. This distance is used for supporting pannels or manufacturing parts. It is also possible to use the HJ-6 to create a door or a folding table hinge. Before considering the HJ-6, we suggest thinking of using other joint sets: HJ-12 or HJ-23
This joint set is designed with 8 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes.
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-6NP

2- Take a connector H-6 and fix it in the desired location on 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 completely the M6-25B bolt and M6-N nut together until the H-6 connectors attached firmly to the P1 pipe . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
5- Repeat step two with H-5 connectors and P2 pipe.
6-Take a M6-25B bolt and a M6-N nut and insert them into the corresponding openings of h-5 and h-6 connectors. Make sure to put the bolt on the more accessible side.
7- Tighten the M6-25B bolts and nuts M6-N together a few threads , but no more.
8- Position the two H-6 connector in the desired angle.
9- Tighten completely the M6-25B bolts and M6-N nuts together until the HJ-6 attached firmly to the P1 and P2 pipes . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
