The T connector is our most popular structural pipe fitting and rightfully so. You get an incredible building solution at an affordable price. Designed to fit inexpensive ¾ inch EMT conduit which is readily available at your local hardware store. The T fitting allows you to easily connect two pipes at a 90 degree angle or use it as an elbow on the ends of conduit. The clamp design allows you to quickly change a connection while building or remove and reuse the connectors in a future project. This versatile tee fitting can also be adapted to fit ½ inch EMT when used with our inexpensive adapter shim.
Every connector we offer features a steel construction and a corrosion resistant black e-coating. This means your build is better protected 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 T connector
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.
After years of building all of our production work tables and desks out of wood we decided to go lean and modular. The best way to do this was with pipe and being able to get the pipe at our local home improvement store was important. After some searching with found Maker Pipe and knew this would be the perfect connectors to allow us to use standard EMT pipe. We were looking to purchase a large amount so called and spoke with David who was very helpful in helping determine the correct pieces we needed for our project. He really went over and beyond to assist us. Our order arrived quickly and in a few short days we had rebuilt our entire production area out of Maker Pipe. The connectors were easy to use and hold tight. Everything we needed to built we could easily do it with these connectors and much easier than with wood. We also added the Maker Pipe wheel kits to everything we built. Now that it is done we have a lot more space in our production area that will allow us to grow and expand over time.
I wanted to light our sheltie's fenced area of the yard. The picket fence was already in place, so I planned to mount chain link poles to the existing 4x4's and install a top rail all the way around to mount string lights. I knew chain link parts were not going to be cheap, but they seemed the best option...until I saw the internet ad for MakerPipe. Like a gift from heaven, these were EXACTLY the gadgets I needed. Instead of $600 for chain link posts and rails, I got a much neater and cleaner result for about $120 in conduit and MakerPipe connectors. We could not have been happier with the results. Dave and Kelly, you are geniuses. Thanks for providing us things we can actually use to solve problems and unleash our creativity.
I needed to make a 3 ft by 16 ft fence to keep the critters out of my boat house in the winter. I looked at several different ways to accomplish this before I came across Maker Pipe. This allowed me to simply and easily create the exact size fence I needed in about an hour. I attached 36 inch wide hardware cloth (1/2" square openings) to the EMT pipes via screws and washers to allow water the flow in and keep beavers, otters, woodchucks, etc. out. Looks great, light enough for one person to move and way less than half the cost of other methods I was considering. Looking forward to my next project.
Was looking for a way to build a frame to support a privacy screen inside an apartment patio area for a friend. This fit the bill and made for a sturdy structure that is self supporting. Easy to build, trivial to cut and fit, and adjustable size panel areas as well using cross rails and Makerpipe connectors! Very happy with the outcome! Used with shade cloth, some press thru tie points, and zip ties.
