Installation Instructions:


Changes in elevation can be accommodated using the corner elbow or adjustable corner. A 90° change in elevation can be made using the corner elbow which offers a quick, neat and secure connection.

Position the corner elbow over the central shaft, making sure the shaft is fully inserted into the elbow cavity and then tighten the hex screw to securely hold the shaft in place.

Top Tip: Install the corner elbow with the hex screws facing away from view. Additionally, for increased security, we recommend the use of threadlocking adhesive, available separately.

Loosen any locking collars to allow for fine positioning the corner such that the next shaft at 90° can feed through the clearance hole in the supports and be fully inserted into the elbow cavity.

Assuming your supports are installed, insert the central shaft through the clearance hole in the support nearest the elbow and fix a locking collar above the support to prevent the shaft from falling through.

Before inserting the shaft into the elbow, load the spurs onto the shaft at the elbow side of the support. Once loaded make sure the shaft is fully inserted into the elbow cavity and ensure the flat end of the first spur is pushed up against it. Finally, tighten the hex screw to securely hold the shaft in place.

Tighten all the locking collars and ensure that the system is secure. If you are trying to achieve anything other than a 90° change in elevation then our adjustable corner offers nearly 360° of adjustability.

Ensure that the central shaft is fully inserted into the cup part of the adjustable corner and then tighten the hex screw to securely hold the shaft in place.

Top Tip: Install the adjustable corner with the hex screws facing away from view. Additionally, for increased security, we recommend the use of threadlocking adhesive, available separately.

Assuming your supports are installed, insert the central shaft through the clearance hole in the support nearest the change in elevation and fix a locking collar above the support to prevent the shaft from falling through.

Before inserting the shaft into the corner, load the spurs onto the shaft at the corner side of the support. Once loaded make sure the shaft is fully inserted into the corner cavity and ensure the flat end of the first spur is pushed up against it. Finally, tighten the hex screw to securely hold the shaft in place.
