How To

Stage 1

Building Handle

  • Take an 18” pipe and connect an Elbow (672-506HC) to each side. Make sure the Elbows (672-506HC) are facing the same direction.
  • Attach a 36” pipe to each open end of Elbow (672-506HC) and cap the bottom of each 36” pipe with a Flange (673-106HC).

Stage 2

Attaching Handle

  • Place what was built in Stage 1 on the wood piece and mark the Flange (673-106HC) screw holes.
  • Pre-drill the holes and install Flanges (673-106HC) using wood screws.

Steel•Tek Professional Tip

  • Once the Flange (673-106HC) holes are marked and pre-drilled, it is much easier to secure the Flanges (673-106HC) if they are detached from the structure. Once Flanges (673-106HC) are installed to the wood piece, slide the pipe back in the Flanges (673-106HC) and tighten set screw.

Stage 3

Installing Casters

  • Line up Swivel Casters (678-504) to the bottom of the wood piece, mark the screw holes and pre-drill.
  • Install Swivel Casters (678-504) using wood screws.
