The ARMADILLO Coupling allows the joining of two 6.5” or 9.5” ARMADILLO Closure shell kits or ARMADILLO Stainless shell kits end to end. The result is an increased cable opening area for special applications or for cable repair applications. Any length combination of 6.5” or 9.5” shells may be joined, but it is recommended that no more than two shell kits be joined. The ARMADILLO Coupling uses the standard torque bars that come with the shell kits to be joined. Pre-cut and punched LOCK-TAPE Sealant gaskets are applied to all mating surfaces of the ARMADILLO Coupling halves.
