Default 45 degree seal tite fittings

Why is it so hard to get 45 degree seal tite fittings ????????????????????????

No one local has them; not the supply house, not the home depot. I had to order them from Amazon. The next best choice was MSC for $25 each !!!!

Just like its hard to get 90DEGREE duplex BX connectors. It seems in decades past these items were on shelves in supply houses and stocked in shops and trucks.

Most of my work was industrial and I used a lot of 1/2 and 3/4" 45° sealtight connectors and never had any problem getting them.
I checked the online stock for the local Gexpro and they have 1/2. 3/4, 1, and 1 1/2 on the shelf.

I can usually get duplex BX 90s next day around here, they are made by Arlington. As for sealtite 45s, I have never seen one in person, only in pictures.

Same here. I can get 45 degree sealtite fittings all day long at a number of places, but I don't think I've ever even seen a duplex BX 90 degree fitting. I imagine it would be handy for cut-in boxes.

Yes it does but the spec say Zinc die-cast. Twin screw for Flex • NM • AC • MCI steel and aluminum jacketed cables • MCI-A cable.

I have used them for MC with no problem, We actually use the snap in version of the Arlington connectors for MC and they work great.
