Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular with Extension
LEGO piece MPN product code 53586.
LEGO 53586 Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular with Extension has gained a bit of notoriety in the LEGO community, thanks to its somewhat... suggestive shape. Some builders have pointed out that the extension portion of the piece looks a bit like a certain male anatomical feature (if you know what I mean).
Of course, we would never use such a crass or dirty word to describe this piece. We prefer to think of it as a "silly-looking connector that happens to resemble something that is definitely not appropriate for polite company."
But despite its questionable shape, LEGO 53586 Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular with Extension is actually a very useful piece in many advanced Technic builds. It provides a sturdy and reliable connection point between two perpendicular axles or pins, and the extension portion can be used to add extra support or stability to a larger construction. Additionally, the piece's sturdy construction and reliable connection point make it an ideal choice for advanced Technic builds that require precise alignment and strong connections.
So while we can't deny that this piece has a certain... risqué quality to it, let's not forget that it's also a valuable tool for any serious LEGO builder. Just try to keep a straight face when you're using it in your builds...
