Appleton™ Liquidtight Flexible Metal Conduit Connectors with Wire Mesh Strain Relief

Appleton

Appleton™ liquidtight flexible metal conduit connectors with wire mesh strain relief are designed for use with use with liquidtight flexible metal conduit that is subjected to flexure, vibration, motion, or strain. STB Type connects to threaded hubs. STN Type is for connections to sheet metal enclosures. Female ST™Type connects to threaded rigid conduit and IMC. The stainless steel wire mesh prevents pull-out of flexible conduit from fitting and alleviates flexing stress at liquidtight connection.
