It looks like UL has listed a few more EMT fittings for wet locations. From what I'm reading, for one particular brand, we'll need torque wrenches & crows foot adapters. What a pain.

Go here for a look.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

There's always duct tape...

Oh sorry, I thought this was a D.I.Y board! [Linked Image]

As long as you use listed duct tape, I think it would be OK [Linked Image] (yes, UL does list duct tape).

I've personally not heard of anyone being written up for the use of the non-raintight fittings. I'm seeing them being used everywhere I go.
The only raintight fitting I've ever even seen was on Bridgeport's display table at a trade show.

Torque wrenches, a crow's foot, the multiplier for the difference in the handle length, and the math skills to apply it
(many guys can't even convert from inch/lbs to ft/lbs).

What a pain is right!!

This is strictly a vendor-promotional URL, but see

[Aside — about a decade or two ago, ETP was the only manufacturer of listed raintight EMT fittings in 2½-4 inch size. They had large black-rubber boots around outer gland rings.]
