    Motor Conduit Fitting Name??

    What is the 3/8" Greenfield connector that attaches to a motor called?? This is the one that has two ears, that are either screwed or riveted to the motor body. This is not a junction box, you must have long motor wires to pull through the Greenfield to go to the control box. Thanks.

    BTW I know Graingers has them under the Dayton Name.

    Can you post a pic? Do you want to use this on the motor, as you described, or for something else?

    The best I can do is give you the Grainger's Stock Number 4VZJ7. I'm using them on motors. Our new Purchasing Agent is being a PITA, and wants a second source for them.

    What's it going to save.....maybe 15%? 15% of $10 is $1.50. The time to try to find the name and another supplier is going to.......WHATEVER.

    I hate purchasing agents.

    Its a type of two screw cord connector. Looks specific to Dayton motors.

    They are available on amazon.com. Tell you agent to hook up with the grainger rep for special pricing. Ive seen them drop 40% off the catalog price.

    10% on $15 is nothing but what if you do it 200 times...
