      Q:Will it bend?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello TomL, without knowing all project specifics, it is difficult for us to say if the union will cause a sag or not. It might be worth seeing if The Home Depot has any type of brackets to support the union while allowing the curtains to fully close. We hope this helps with your project.

        Q:What is the approximate amount of space that the 1/2 joiner will take up when joining two black pipes together, or in other words what is the gap supposed to be between the two pipes being joined.
        by|Mar 19, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi DCBA, you will have approximately 1/5-in on each side to thread onto your pipes, which gives approximately a gap of 1-1/4-in. We hope this helps with your project.

        by|Mar 21, 2022

          A:  They indicate the product length is 2" inches. Take off a 1/4 inch for each side the pipes threads into. So you should account for a inch and a half gap in you measurement.

            Did what it was supposed to. Threads were clean, and sealed up nicely.
