The T connector is designed to fit inexpensive ¾ inch EMT conduit which is readily available at your local hardware store. With this amount of T connectors in your arsenal you can build almost anything. Use them to create anything from simple tables to elaborate storage solutions.

Every connector we offer features a steel construction and a corrosion resistant black e-coating. This means your build has a sleek design that better protects your projects indoors and out. Combine these connector features with the strong and durable nature of galvanized steel conduit and you get an affordable yet sturdy building platform.
*Hardware and extra friction bands are included with each connector
Example Builds: Bike Cart & Homebrew Station
The T connector consists of two mirrored pieces that interlock together with a puzzle piece design. The two pieces clamp together with one nut and bolt. The pocket feature locks the nut into place when tightening, this makes for an easy one tool assembly no matter which side the nut is on. Every connector comes with a pre applied friction band that makes connections even more secure.
I had a couple of projects in mind when I put in my order however we unexpectedly need to build a custom bed frame for my daughter and with Maker Pipe it was fun and easy.
Next up is a workbench and a sailboat mast holder.
I need to make a kayak stand for my kayaks on my trailer and I wanted to save weight and be waterproof. These fittings made the job super easy and I will definitely be using them for most of my small projects. Here's my build video if your interested. https://youtu.be/POMwbWctASw
I discovered that my conduit was smaller than the connectors were really designed for (~0.900" vs ~0.930"), so I used a friction band on each end of each length of conduit. This was a tiny hassle, but after that, everything worked quite nicely. I got the frame of my storage project built in a couple of hours. Seems like this should be quite sturdy enough for my purposes.
I was designing an insulated dormer to go over my skylights to help with the summer heat in Sacramento. The dormer was going to shut out a lot of the light, so I decided to build a skylight shade structure. One of my google searches found the T Connectors which looked ideal. So I bought the Maker Kit and 3/4" emt pipe to build 2 2x4' skylight shade frames. They turned out great, and are expandable. Plus we still get a lot of natural light. Attached is my preliminary design and a couple of pictures. The T Connector is great, easy to use and cost effective. 2 more shade frames to go!
