    Re: Lead Fit All Caps

    I have two in my van and have never used them. Crazy thing is 1 1/2 hrs ago I took one out. I was going to try it on a 4" pvc c/o as I drilled the original to drain the main and didn't have anymore pvc left. I dont know if it would even work but I decided against it as I'm sure this main is going to clog again and I didn't want to drill that type of cap as it looks like it would be a PIA and with the amount of head at this place I'm not about to try to loosen the cap slowly. Other thought was expanding plug but same issue. Ended up plugging drill hole on original and leaving a trash can with instructions to keep an eye on it for tonight and in the A.M. I'll return with the proper cap.
    I think I tried to use one on galvanized once but if I remember correctly it didn't fit???

        It's a cap with a tapered bead of threaded lead. I assume since the lead is somewhat pliable it will conform to the existing thread??? Tap and dye sort of thing I guess??
        So far the only "fit All" that I have seen is they fit all the way in the back of the shelf in the van

          just read about these elsewhere,never seen one myself. When you bust old brass or cast plug on a c. o. You HAMMER these in. A homeowner thought the drainers were hackers,not using a pipe wrench to screw a new plug in . A plumber said it must of been a lead fit all. good thing,He wasen't going to pay THOSE HACKERS!!
