Thats intersting! I need to get my hands on one to see what that thing is all about. Sometimes, however, nothing beats the old tried and true.

i think these are made to be truck stock, so that you dont have to 4 or 5 different condulets.
they are pretty expensive.
for what i do, i dont think i would ever use one.

If it's universal why didn't they put in a set screw to do EMT? Also what the heck is the blue coating for? They sell blue coated ridged conduit too?

They still seem a little weird, to me, and I normally like weird fittings. To use them as a C body, you'd still need a kick in the pipe at each hub. For the same money, I'd rather use Arlington's "Any Body". Much more functional. They have threads, or you can turn in the set screw for EMT:

I've seen those bodies with 4 pipes connected to them....1 out each side [think "C"]..and 2 coming out one of the longer flat sides:

The brand I used had a blue PVC coating.

Used those on a job. For some applications I can see them as the best solution. I can also agree in a pinch, they could be a sub for LR LL and sort of LB,but a C? Not a realistic solution for a C in rigid unless you have clearance and it is not exposed.
