A new line of polyethylene, tapered plugs includes more than 70 sizes, stocked and ready to ship. Tapered plugs, or T-plugs, are often used to protect tube ends, threads, and ports during shipping and storage.

The products can be used as caps or plugs. Tapered plugs fit most SAE-type fittings, NPT threads, and unthreaded standard-weight pipes.
