Record Multi Fitting Plastic Mainline Saddle Entrance Fitting
The Record Multi Fitting is an excellent plastic entrance fitting designed for connecting a single 5/16" lateral line to your mainline. It features a wide base and large rubber gasket, that together create a great seal, especially when being used on Leader 30P plastic mainline tubing.
This mainline entrance uses a 5/16" diameter hole drilled into the mainline. A small, tapered tip then slides into the hole, with the gasket surrounding it to seal. The record multi fitting is tightened on with a pair of water pump/channel lock pliers, using the fitting's self-ratcheting strap. No additional pieces are needed to install this fitting properly.
The hose-barbed nipple for the 5/16" plastic lateral line tubing swivels 360 degrees, which allows it to work from any angle. The nipple is made for the hole to be drilled slightly down off the top of the pipe, so that the mainline support wire can stay directly on top of the mainline and does not have to be rotated to the side.
