I lookin to put sideboards on my cat, and have single frame tubes that run down the center of the cat tubes. I've thought about offsetting it to run double frame tubes, but that is extra weight and a pretty big cost.
My idea was to run abs pipe under either side of my sideboard, drill a hole through the abs, using two foot sections or so to strap under both sides of the board, then cut strap holes in the middle of the board to connect to the frame tube.
The only problem is see is that abs can be brittle at times and might crack where I cut it to strap it, I could not cut it and strap it straight around. But then there would be a little movement which I would prefer not to have. I guess I'd have to try it to see how much.
Id like to stay away from hose clamps like I've seen some guys use.
Wondering if any of you guys have seen a suitable replacement? Some 3" or so hard foam triangles i could run a strap through would be perfect if I could find something like that. Hell maybe even a stiff pool floatie tube??
