Hello, See the attached photo. This is a very handy 3/4" conduit fitting we use in irrigation and lighting when we run wires through walls. It covers the end of the conduit pipe and the hole we drill for the wire. You can remove the rubber cap and inject some sealant. Its fast, works great and is a very clean looking install. They are also made in 1/2" and white in color.
My problem is I am about to run out and my local distributor can't get them anymore. They came from a company down in FL. We have made countless attempts to contact the company but have had no luck.
Does anybody have a source or any info?
Thanks for your help!

I'll call tomorrow the few places I bought them from. Pm me your contact info and I'll shoot you a quick note so you can snatch them up. I used a lot of those myself.

Is there no name on the parts? Looks like something easy enough to make a copy of.

I use LBs for entering and exiting buildings. They allow for a wire to be added later.

Yup, a PVC electrical LB (http://www.lowes.com/pd_75784-223-E986E-CTN_0__?productId=1100369&Ntt=carlon+lb&pl=1&currentURL=&facetInfo=) beats those any day.

No name only a patent number
I looked it up and it was patented to the guy that sold them

I've tried lb's and don't care for them in the 3/4" and smaller size.
They require a larger hole in the wall to hide the coupler portion of the box.
With this unit I can use a smaller hole and cover it quite easy plus it will allow running wires to the full capacity of the pipe because of the gentle sweep into the wall. I always felt the lb restricted wire capacity at the elbow somewhat and was a sharper turn. this unit can be attached w 2 screws no need for a pipe strap. They can easily be taken off to add more wire
I like em a lot and will continue to use them. Thanks for your input.

Plus they are handy in service to clean up a poor wire run into the building. Don't have to pull the wires out and slide them back through into the building. Came in 1/2" 3/4" white and grey colors.

I wonder if the guy sold the patent and molds to another company.
