How do I protect exposed threads between a liquid tight fitting and a conduit body?

Liquid Tight Fitting to PVC-Coated Condulet benefits from a PVC Transition Adapter


What should I do if I have exposed threads when transitioning from a PVC liquid tight fitting to a PVC-coated conduit body. Do you have any products or installation tips to help with this?


Exposed threads can be of great concern as they are the weakest link in any conduit system and are the most vulnerable to corrosion. To help with this type of transition our PVC-coated liquid tight fittings in ½”-2” trade sizes now come standard with our new PVC Liquid Tight Transition Adapter. The best part?

It is no added cost to you.

The adapter’s design helps it fit securely against the female end of a conduit body with the sleeve trimmed. This eliminates the risk of exposed threads when making your transition, and allows for the recommended minimum 3 ½ thread engagement of male liquid tight threads.

Additionally, the use of the PVC transition adapter reduces the number of parts that you need to make a secure transition, saving you material time, cost, and space.
