I don't have any experience working with steel

Start with a simple structure (cube) and let your imagination go from there!

I don't have a lot of free time on my hands

3 Step Plan

1. Fit it

Insert the connector into the steel/aluminium profile. Use a rubber mallet to knock into place. Make sure to check that you are using the correct wall thickness profiles (Steel : 1.2 – 1.6mm wall thickness | Aluminium: 1.2 – 1.4mm wall thickness)

2. Lock it

Align the Wafer Tek Screw approx 20mm from the edge of the profile, and apply sufficient pressure while drilling to ensure it does not slip. Start on a slower speed and then increase it as the screw progresses through the profile.

3. Like it

Admire your handiwork and wonder why you have waited so long to use Connect-it. Now, get to finishing your project and send photos of your completed build to to get featured on our social channels.
