How much bar rail tubing do I need to wrap around a corner?

Adding corners to bar foot rail

To accurately measure foot rail tubing that will turn a corner, add the depth of the bracket minus the dimensions of the elbow you will be using. For example, if you select a bracket that holds the rail 6 inches from the face of the bar, that bracket will add nearly 6 inches to the overall length of the rail you will need. (6’ section of bar + 6” bracket depth - 3” elbow fitting size = 6’ 3” section of tubing needed)
