Tee on the Half Shell?

Need help finding a stainless steel tee for tubing that will split into two for 7/8 - 1" tubing.

I am trying to mount solar panels above davits but do not what to cut existing tubing to build frame work. We have several on our boat now but I can not find any source or manufacture. Anybody have a source?

Depends what you intend to use the tee for: a driver or a 6-iron?

Seriously though, try these guys. I couldn't see exactly what you're describing, but there might be something in their range which would work.

How do I descibe this - If you were to slice a tee in half, rap half around the tubing and place the other half piece on the other side of tubing and clamp (bolt tight). Now the tee is around the tubing and you have a place to run new tubing 90 degrees to the tubing that you have clamped to. I need a picture.

They are call break-apart jaw slides. Taco makes them, also look up bimini top builders.

Jaw slide is what I am looking for but I need one with a tubing insert on the perpendicular to the tubing clamp side.
