Speaking of â€śsuitable for use with service entrance conduitâ€ť. Is an off-set nipple â€śsuitable for use with service entrance conduitâ€ť? NEC doesn't seem to touch on it in 230.43, but does UL list these thin die cast parts as â€śsuitable for use with service entrance conduitâ€ť? I wouldn't use them as I don't think they have the physical strength to protect service conductors. As far as die cast parts go, a bolt on hub is made a lot stronger, like four or more times as strong as an off-set nipple. The area I work in will only accept IMC or RMC. And, I have never seen an off-set nipple used for any part of a service, other than on this forum a while back.
