wanted: a source for 1.25" stainless rail fittings

I've been unable to locate a source for 1.25" stainless steel rail fittings, the type used to assemble grab rails by using pre-fabricated components. I find many sources for 1" and smaller but nothing of greater diameter. If you happen to know where I might find a retailer I would appreciate the contact information. thank you.

Here you go, they look nice as they do not have the allen screws.

thanks very much for the quick and helpful reference. Unfortunately it looks like the required wall thickness to use their fittings is too thin for my purposes. I've emailed them to be sure, and to ask for potential sources, but haven't heard anything yet. thanks again. bryan

They're made from 304L stainless, not really suitable for salt water use, 316L is the one to use.

Hi sunrider, I have some 1" diameter stainless tubing which I need some elbows for. Any chance you could tell me where you found the 1" ranges?

A Google search for "stainless rail fittings" will give you many sources, including West Marine. I didn't follow up on any non-USA hits so not sure about what you might find in your area...I would expect there would be more resources than here though...good luck.
