Might be better than a fitting full of Chico.

I don’t even use Chico any more, I use this expanding foam stuff, you don’t have to separate the wires.

Explosion proof and not too expensive never appear in the same sentence lol

The pull elbows, previously mentioned, are from Crouse-Hinds with the starting designation EL

That fitting (LBY15) is $48 loonies... more then the cost of all the wire used in the alarm system for sure!

Jeez, I hope I dont need more than 1! They're more than the alarm system equipment!

Seeing as how you bought them out of stock, why don't you pay me to take them off your hands because I don't think you'll be using them any time soon. I think paying me $30 each is a fair price, and you drive them up yourself to hand deliver them. Yes, that sounds fair to me

Just use a normal $2 plumbing 90. It is low voltage so it doesn't matter. don't plan on pulling thru it though

If he only had to buy one to make the job the way he wanted I don't think $27 US is that expensive. I think spending $27 dollars on this fitting would be much cheaper than the time it would take to try and pull through a plumbing elbow.

EDIT: to add, just looked up the UNL105, the 1/2" 90* with the union is $69.55. Over double what the explosion proof LBY15 costs.

Actually just found Galco has the LBY15 for $21

Meh. It is just residential. You are looking at this through the eyes of a bank alarm installer.
Just make it look like it's not an alarm conduit. I wouldn't worry about it much more then using EMT or PVC and normal fittings. Super glue the cover closed after you finish. Run a normally closed alarmed pair through the same cable so if it is cut, it will alarm anyways.
