  • For the second post you will want a Two Socket Cross (671-904HC) in the middle, 2 Three Socket Tee’s (670-404HC) on each side, A Flange (673-104HC) to cap the bottom and a Swivel Base (676-904HC) cap the top. Space the fittings appropriately then tighten set screws.
  • The third and fourth posts will be identical. Slide three Two Socket Crosses (671-904HC) onto pipe, cap the bottom with a Flange (673-104HC) then the top with a Swivel Base (676-904HC). Space the fittings appropriately then tighten set screws.
