|Adapters connect different types of material or different thread sizes together. For example, an adapter might connect a run of nonmetallic conduit to a metal junction box with solvent cement on one end and threads on the other.|
|Bushings are inserted into the ends of metal conduit to keep the sharp edges from damaging the wires that run through the conduit.|
Couplings connect runs of the same type of conduit to create a longer straight line.
• Metallic couplings are generally attached to metallic conduit with set screws or with
|Elbows join runs of the same type of conduit together to turn corners or to change direction in a gentle sweeping curve, rather than a sharp right angle, which makes it easy to pull wires through without damaging them.|
|Straps hold conduit to the wall or joist to keep the conduit from sagging or breaking.|
|Connectors are used to join runs of conduit together or to join conduit to outlet boxes, load centers or other devices.|
