  • CSA Certified as CONCRETE TIGHT
  • Manufactured in accordance with ANSI C80.3
  • Available in trade sizes 1/2 (16) – 4 (103)

* Installation time will vary with job site conditions

Installation Steps

  • Kwik-Fit 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 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.
