This super versatile, super strong T clamp lets you attach two 7/8 inch (22.2mm) tubes or two 1 inch (25.4mm) tubes at 90 degrees to each other . One end of the T-clamp goes inside of and clamps to one of the tubes, while the outside of other tube is clamped by a discreet but sturdy machined arch. You are free to choose which tube gets clamped which way. The 7/8 inch and 1 inch size means it's useful in all kinds of places. We use this clamp on our neckrest mounts, SeatSide mounts, and we even use it to make display stands when we go to shows. Note: that this clamp is designed to hold accessories; it is NOT designed to hold handlebars in place.

- A versatile clamp with a variety of uses. Designed to be very compact yet strong enough to lots of uses. That said, it's not designed to handle steering forces, so you can't use it to hold your handlebars together. Wedge clamp is optimized for 7/8 x 0.065 wall tubing (with an ID of 0.745-ish inches or 18.9mm). Face clamp is optimized for painted 7/8 in OD tubing. It will clamp a variety of other things, you'll need to test it when you are using it on tubing with different specs.
- Machined from 6061T6 aluminum and anodized black. All fasteners are stainless. Face clamp is 1.4in (35.5mm) wide. Wedge clamp is 1.0in (25.4mm) deep. Wedge clamp bolt is m6 with a 5mm socket head, arch clamp bolts are m4 with a 3mm socket head. Not for use as an integral part of a steering system, but may be used to attach accessories to handlebars.
- Fits nearly any place* you'd like to attach one 7/8 tube to another.
*Not for use in holding your steering system together- you need proper handlebar stems/bar ends for that.
I used this t-clamp in the end of my USS handlebars to hold a piece of tubing for my mirror to mount into. This way the mirror sticks out a bit further so I can more easily see around my arm to view cars behind me. Very easy and fast to install. Holds my mirror securely.
