More McMaster stuff

For getting wires in and out of sealed housings, these liquid-tight fittings work quite well. They are black nylon, and are installed using a normal NPT pipe tap into the housing wall. They have a neoprene ring inside which clamps tightly around the jacketing of your cable to create a water tight seal. We haven't used these for subsurface projects, butthey work very well for the equipment we put out in the splash zone.

Part number 69915K61
Nylon Liquid-Tight Cord Grip Fitting Straight Flex, 3/8" NPT, .16"-.31" Cord Dia
