In this article, we’ll explain just how straightforward it is to install both our metallic and non metallic conduits.

Installing a Flex-It Conduit

  • For extra safety, we highly recommend that you switch off any power to the location in which you are going to be working.
  • To begin, you’ll need the non metallic or metallic conduits that are suitable for the environment in which it is to be installed. You can contact Flex-It to ask for advice if you are not sure of the style that will perform best for your particular needs.

You’ll also need a connector that is designed to fit this particular size of conduit. It should also be the right size to fit the knockout hole size in your electrical box, or any other location from which your conduit will be travelling.

  • Attach the connector to the conduit, then tighten the screw using a screwdriver to hold it securely in place.
  • The knockout hole in your electrical box or other source should currently be filled with a metal plate or disc, which can be easily pushed out using your screwdriver or another similar tool.

Your conduit connector should then click neatly into place in the gap.

Once your conduit is safely connected, we recommend using high quality fastening clips – such as those manufactured by our partner company Schnabl – to affix your conduit neatly and firmly to ceilings and walls.
