Joining a VERTICAL 1" pipe to horizontal 1" pipe (without drilling)


I am trying to figure out the right kind of clamp to use on a Yakima Bike rack, which will save over $100 bucks a set on something similar to this:

I need to somehow connect 1 vertical pipe to the bar across the top of my car which is 1" in diameter. I do not want to drill a hole as that will weaken the bars. Any ideas on clamps that may work?

I've seen some like these that don't require drilling. Not sure where to get them though.

Thanks guys, these are still a little expensive. I did see this idea using copper connectors. They never finished it, so I'd have to register and ask the guy I guess!

Copper is soft and will bend under stress, especially those fittings since they are cut in half. I'd bet he finished but it failed. IMO, $100 for the rack is a good investment as you know it will work with your existing bar. Think of the cost if your homemade solution fails and your kayaks go flying off the roof of your car possibly hurting someone else.

Good point! This is a DIY forum though.... although I do want to have a safe solution, and save some money of possible!

Thanks
