PT15 Position Coupler

The nVent LENTON Ultimate PT15 Position Coupler is designed for high performance applications, efficiently creating mechanical reinforcing bar connections when neither bar can be rotated or adjusted axially. The nVent LENTON self-aligning, taper-thread reduces misalignment issues and helps eliminate cross-threading during installation. The straight thread allows the coupler to telescope out and "bridge gaps" between mating bars. The PT15 is used in conjunction with the MS15 Male Straight Threaded Stud and the MT12 Male Taper-Threaded Stud for positional/caging connections.

Additionally, the PT15 Standard Coupler can be used in conjunction with threaded bars produced on nVent LENTON threaders. However, when using in conjunction with taper-threaded bars produced on nVent LENTON threaders the performance of the connection may change. Contact your nVent LENTON representative for more information.
