Skin Fittings with Tails

The Skin Fitting with Tail body and nut are moulded from glass-reinforced nylon composite. High strength, high-modulus glass fibres within the nylon composite provide dramatic strength, stiffness, toughness and dimensional stability. These properties allow a significant weight reduction over metallic fittings.
TruDesign Skin Fittings with Tails eliminate the corrosion and electrical bonding problems associated with metallic fittings.
All Skin Fittings are supplied with a nylon washer to increase locknut support on the hull.

TruDesign Skin Fittings with Tails are certified by the International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI) & Bureau Veritas to meet; ISO 9093-2 Small craft — Seacocks and through-hull fittings — Part 2: Non-metallic
For below waterline applications, see our Skin Fittings Threaded or Skin Fittings Recessed product ranges (as a Ball Valve must be directly attached to the Skin Fitting for safety and compliance to marine standards).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I fit a Skin Fitting with Tail below the waterline ?

    NO All Skin Fittings fitted below the waterline must be threaded and connected directly to a Ball Valve to enable shut off in event of an emergency. Additionally, 2 stainless steel hose clips should be used on every tail fitting and periodically checked for tightness as they may loosen off as the hose ages.
