[QUOTE=BryanS.;325945]Just built a speed rail frame using 1.25" i.d. aluminum tubing. Are these set screws gonna be enough to hold the frame together when I strap it to the tubes. I countersank the screws on the outside corners and used locktite, but not sure that'll be enough.

The answer is no, You need pins through the shank of the fitting at the critical connections, i.e outside corners as well as connections adjacent to coolers.
