Designed to give a 90 degree butt joint between two pipes. Frequently used for the joint between end uprights and the middle rail where the railing site is straight and level. Also used for base ties on racking. This fitting cannot be used where the pipe through sleeve 'A' is required to be joined within the fitting. Type L25 should be used when a join in the pipe is necessary.

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.
