I had a few customers asking me to carry Form 7 conduit bodies, are they that different than the Form 5 I've been selling for years? Aside from the snap on covers are they used in the same application?

The best thing about form 7 is that no mater what the cover will come off and you will be able to put one back on. That is the biggest advantage of them.

The ones with rolers are nice but if you put the body in right they aren't needed as much.

At leased they don't want killark bodies.
