This fitting is designed to give a 90 degree offset crossover. As there are two socket set screws in the sleave, this KEE KLAMP fitting can be used where a join is required in the horizontal pipe. For economy, it is possible to use a Type 45 in place of the Type 145, where a join in the pipe occurs. When calculating the cutting lengths for the pipe, dimension "G" should be added to give the pipe length for the upright.
Note: To obtain the true height of the upright the allowance for the base fittings must be included.

Kee Klamp safety components are produced in a range of standard sizes to suit schedule 40 steel pipe, sizes 1/4" nominal to 2” nominal bore; also equivalent sizes of tubing in other materials.
Tubing of other specifications can be used, providing the outside diameter is compatible with schedule 40 pipe. Pipe with a wall thickness of less than 1/8” can only be used in lightly loaded structure.
A Kee Klamp component (size 5 – 9) can support an axial load of 2,000 lbs per set screw with the set screw tightened to a torque of 29 lbs/ft. (Rating includes a safety factor of 2:1.) This is normally obtained when the set screw is fully tightened using a ratchet wrench.
