* Installation time will vary with job site conditions

Installation Steps

  • Kwik-Fit<sup>®</sup> Compression Step 1

    Step 1

    Insert the plain end of the EMT into the integral fitting end of another piece of Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT. Insert fully until seated.

  • Kwik-Fit<sup>®</sup> Compression Step 2

    Step 2

    Turn the gland nut until it is snug. Tighten nut with pliers or wrench. Done! Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT can reduce the installation time by over 50%*.

    * Installation time will vary with job site conditions.

Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT

Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT offers all of the advantages of E-Z Pull® EMT with integrated couplings. These built-in couplings substantially decrease installation time, and remove the need to purchase, inventory, and install separate couplings.

With Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT, simply insert the plain end of the EMT into the compression coupling end and tighten the gland nut. Unlike conventional compression couplings, only one gland nut needs to be tightened.

Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT can decrease installation time up to 50%. Installation times can vary due to job site conditions.


Kwik-Fit® Compression EMT is made from our E-Z Pull® EMT. The all steel combinations result in superior strength, performance and an excellent ground return path along with the benefits of built-in couplings. Columbia-MBF’s superior E-Z Pull® interior coating allows easier wire pulling while lowering the coefficient of static friction.

E-Z Pull® EMT is hot galvanized on the exterior with a patented inline Flo-Coat® process delivering extended-life protection. This process combines zinc, a conversion coating, and a clear organic polymer topcoat to form a triple layer of protection against corrosion and abrasion.
