Heyco or Other Inline Heater Watertight Cordgrip

From the previous DIY inline heater forums, this compression fitting/cordgrip or anything similar is real hard for me to find. Anyone know an alternative, but similar, cordgrip? anyone know how to purchase this actual one? or get a free sample still? specifically, my heater diamater is about 3/4" and pipe is 2".

many thanks

Heyco Product #8437 (Watertight Cordgrip) (Can be order FREE at http://ecommerce.heyco.com/dev/newsa...ample?OpenForm )

the cord grip works great on round cords, not sure for anything else.

I think people are clamping them onto the body of the heater rather than the cord. At least that's what I'm doing.

That is correct. You are doing it the right way.

oh, i see. so you'd need the really big grip cord.

Thanks swylie. But frankly, I'm just another smuck trying to figure this stuff out like everyone else.

But I have been successful with mounting probes. Do an "advanced search" with me as the "threads started by user" and I think you'll find a thread that tells you much of what you need to know. Good luck!

If you don't want to be worried about the inevitable call from the Heyco sales representative, asking how you liked the free sample and when are you going to be putting in a 10,000 unit/month production order, just order one from Mouser, http://www.mouser.com/catalog/632/1634.pdf

It also looks like McMaster-Carr has something similar on pg 811. You just need to know the diameter of your probe/cord/etc.
