Replacement kit for fixtures commonly found on exterior of commercial buildings. These are usually labeled FDC (Fire Department Connection) and/or AUTO SPKR (Automatic Sprinkler). These kits are used when the threaded plugs or dust covers go missing and the brass female swivel fittings the plugs thread into also "disappear". This kit is for one 2.5" NH/NST threaded fitting; the most common size in most parts of the country. The male plug that fits this fitting measures 3.068" outside diameter but is called a 2.5" NH/NST Plug. It is always best to verify size with local fire department. TWO KITS are required in most cases; one for each inlet.
Kit does not include plugs. A cover or a plug is recommended with the purchase of this kit.
Installation Tips: Slip on the swivel and feed the 50 bearings in through the set screw hole in to the bearing raceway. Screw in the set screw. Take a punch and carefully give the set screw a pop deter future theft. Insert the rubber gasket into female fitting and seat in rear at the back of the threads. See video above for detailed instructions.
