Designed as an alternative to the Type 328 fitting, this adjustable fitting can be used for railing on staircases between the midrail and an intermediate upright which is required to remain vertical. It may be used at any selected angle between 30 and 45 degrees.

|Pipe For Your Structure|
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.
