Swivel Fittings for Tubular Pipes

Two new fitting kits provide an alternative to welding handrails, guardrails, fences, racks, tables, and other tubular-pipe structures.


The EF45 Single Swivel Kit features an EF35 male fitting connected to an EF36 female fitting. It serves as a variable angle tee for sloping hand-rails, or acts as a brace. The EF46 Swivel Kit includes an EF35 male fitting connected to an EF10 base which provide an in-line angle joint at a post, or can fasten middle rails to uprights in sloping handrails, as well as act as a brace. Kits come in standard 1, 1.25, and 1.5-in. pipe, and require no welding.
