cane connectors

Finished taking down the beans....There it was...gone.
I had used these Figo connectors
to construct the A frame and they were very good, only blew undone once and that was just one joint.  They were much more tolerant of odd sized canes than the last ones, (below)....which work okay with short canes that take only a little stress, but not for anything a large as a runner bean frame.

Also the slots in the round ones were too short and the material they were made of was too rigid to grip the canes well. But I think they would probably work well with the purpose-built tubes that the manufacturers sell to go with the connectors.
As you can tell I'm always up for a good gadget, but just a little too mean to go the whole way (I didn't buy the tubes)
