    I have ordered from several of those companies. The slip tees, snap clamps and 4 way fittings are great.

    Great List. I placed an order with Greenhouse Mega Store late Tuesday night, and it is scheduled to be here tomorrow. Talk about fast service
    Demented? yes but in the best possible sense.

    I was in Lowes the other day and found some of the snap on fittings in the isle right next to the regular T connectors. I have used PVC for school projects in the past, and sure would have loved to have known about some of these "speciality" fittings.

    Yep, Lowes has been carrying some of those snap on fittings for awhile now. Unfortunately, they don't have all the sizes that I would use...but they are handy for some things!!!

    For anyone who owns a bandsaw (or just buy one of the inexpensive 10" Chinese bandsaws) .. The PVC snap Ts are real simple to make. You just hold the PVC T's vertical in the bandsaw blade and cut off some of the top section. I found it easy to make pencil marks on the bandsaw table, as a guide so the parts would get cut consistently. Run it through the saw, then flip it over and run it through again (on the same mark). That makes the slot centered on the T.

    Start off cutting the slot a little smaller than what you want for the finished part, and then make cuts slightly wider until the snap nicely over EMT or PVC pipe that you are connecting. I make my candy cane border posts the same way except the slot is more narrow that the "snap" Ts. Just wide enough for my LED Rope light to drop in.

    Here's a pic of my PVC candy cane posts. Each post is 24" of 1/2" PVC with red tape wrapped around, and the T on top. Notice the slot in the T. Then I just drive a 30" piece of 3/8" rebar in the ground (leaving it sticking up up about 18 to 20 inches. And then drop the PVC candy cane post over top. Quick easy and strong !
