All About REAL-TITE® PLUGS

REAL-TITE® Counter Sunk Expansion Plug

The Reusable, Code-Approved Expansion Plug That Solves ALL Your Problems

REAL-TITE® PLUGS are, quite simply, the best plug money can buy. In fact, they’ve been referred to as “the Cadillac of expansion plugs.” Their unique, self-contained design and durable construction translates to unmatched ease of use, reliability and performance.

They’re dependable. Our plugs have been in the field since 1981, and a plug has never been returned because of material failure. Their flexibility allows them to be used as either a temporary or permanent solution. And, because all REAL-TITE® PLUGS comply with the National Standard Plumbing Code and meet or exceed plumbing Standards for permanent plug usage, you know you’re working with a product you and your customers can trust.

The REAL-TITE® product line offers a variety of sizes (1.5″ to 4″ diameters in 1/2″ increments), styles (counter sunk, thumb bolt or hex head) and finishes (ABS plastic, 12GA stainless steel or 22GA chrome finishing covers).

A Unique Design

REAL-TITE®’s unique design prevents moisture from being revealed to the nut or stainless steel bolt. This allows for removal of a plug in seconds, even after long periods of time in service. The plugs are also designed with a stop bolt, so you have confidence that no parts will fall into the opening during installation or removal.

 

Seals 3 Ways

 

  • 3 embedded o-rings
  • 2 sealing ridges
  • 3/16″ neoprene gasket pressure expanded to create a permanent seal

 

A Tight, Dependable Seal for Virtually Any Opening

 

The compression action of the REAL-TITE® PLUGS wedges the gasket into the pipe opening. This means you can seal any opening permanently, regardless of the condition of the threads.
