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. Certified to ISO 9093-2 by the International Marine Certification Institute, Belgium (not including 1/2”) and type Approved by Bureau Veritas to ISO 9093-2 (not including 1/2”).

All Skin Fittings are supplied with a nylon washer to increase locknut support on the hull.

For below waterline applications, see the Skin Fittings Threaded product range (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.
