Glue the parallel bar part to the two "L" joints.

Glue the feet together (so you have the "upside down T's").

Basically, you end up with three pieces for one parallette (six total pieces), only two joints are not glued per parallette...but by putting weight on it you are holding those together.
That's exactly what I've done. I keep them in a gym bag and they have held up great. Another friend of mine has a set and he uses them at home and on the road. His whole family uses them. I can't imagine 1.5" PVC failing. Even if you use the thicker sched 80 stuff you'll spend way less than $50...
