Perpendicular/Right Angle Pipe Coupler?

I'm wanting to attach a 1" OD pipe, horizontally, between two vertical 1" OD pipes.

I've found these things called cheeseboroughs, or scaffold clamps. However I can only find them in 1.25" and greater size. Also, they are very expensive.

Whatever is used will only have to support up to 50 lbs.
I can't use anything that will damage the pipe.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

50 pounds on a 1" pipe Heavywall ? or black iron ?

How long is the horizontal run between the vertical runs ?

Hello.

The pipes are all steel. Oddly enough I'm sure, the horizontal pipe is going to be holding a plasma television. The horizontal span is 30".

Mounting the tv to the horizontal pipe is easy enough. I'm just stuck as how to mount the horizontal pipe to the fixed vertical ones.

Thanks.

Maybe a chain link fence top rail cup and a custom made strap to hold it to the vertical pipe? Might be a bit large but you could use set screws to hold it tight. You could even use a short piece of top rail as a busing to reduce the diameter.

Split ring extension hangers. Can connect two together with 3/8" rod.

Thanks for the help guys. I very much appreciate it.

If I go the split ring route, are these ok?
Superfix Cushioned Pipe Clamps by CADDY - Pipe Hangers and Clamps by Zoro Tools Industrial Supplies
I like them because they are cushioned.
Also, would the 3/8 threaded rod be strong enough to hold 50 lbs. without bending?

Thanks again.

You would have to try it. We're just making suggestions..... you need to try them out and see if they work for your application.
