Slip-Fit Mount

Slip-Fit Mount

The Slip-Fit Mount is the most commonly used Mount. It is designed to be used on 1/2 in. non-threaded pipes* - even though they may have slightly different outside diameters (O.D.).

  • 1/2 in. copper (.625 O.D.)
  • 1/2 in. galvanized or CPVC (.84 O.D.)

The differences in the copper and galvanized or CPVC pipe O.D. is accommodated by the use of different Seals and, in the case of mounting on copper, a Split Ring adapter. 

The the different seals (one for copper and one for galvanized or CPVC pipes) and the Split Ring adapter all ship with the Slip-Fit Mount.

The ideal pipe length (measured from the wall) for using the Slip-Fit Mount is 1 1/2 in. However pipe lengths measuring from 1 1/4 in. to 1 3/4 in. are acceptable).

A Trim Plate (escutcheon plate) is available for use with the ADTS' tub spout. It has a depth of 3/8 in. and can be used to fill a gap between the wall and the back of the tub spout. It can also be used to cosmetically cover larger access openings to the tub spout's water supply. If using the Trim Plate, be sure to add its depth (3/8 in.) to the pipe length measurements provided above.

 * Special Consideration: Use On Formerly Threaded Pipe

There may be instances when the Slip-Fit Mount can be used with a threaded pipe. This occurs when the pipe is long (more than 1 3/4 in., measured from the wall) and the threads become removed after cutting it to the proper length for accommodating the Auto Diverting Tub Spout System. Ideal pipe length for using this Mount is measured by using the Spacing Tube included with the Slip-Fit Mount. If the pipe can be cut to the ideal length (1 1/2 in., measured from the wall) and the threads become removed in the process, use the Slip-Fit Mount.

Note: The minimum pipe length (after cutting the pipe) for use with the Slip-Fit Mount is 1 1/4 in. If the threads can be removed and 1 1/4 in. of pipe remains after cutting, the Slip-Fit Mount can be used.
