One of the tricks I've used, admittedly on larger diameter (2 & 3")
material, is anchoring one end of a piece of tubing to a tree and then a
come along to the other end and another tree. I've been able to pull
apart pieces with 2-4 foot overlap. No reason the same approach won't
work for small tubing.
In one case, even this approach didn't work. I resorted to a dremel
tool and put a slit down the length of the overlap in the outter piece
of tubing. You have to have a light touch or you end up with a slit in
both pieces of tubing. Admittedly in this approach, you lose the length
of the overlap due to the slit.
