Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Re-purposed - worked great for my application on a John Deere tractor! I re-purposed these plugs. I used these on a John Deere 512 front loader to make tool/accessory storage compartments. The plugs fit perfectly into the mounting brackets on each side of the tractor. The plugs fit into the 6" round x 11" long bracket extensions, making a good space to carry chains, towing lugs, pins, etc. A bonus is that the plugs are yellow - like the John Deere paint scheme.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 6" PVC Pipe Plug These were excellent products and effectively closed off the Schedule 80 6" pipe in both the normal end and the bell end. I had been planning to build my own set, but finally decided to purchase these to support our efforts to heat and bend Schedule 80 pipe. The plugs were an excellent purchase. July 29, 2014
