    Hi,

    I am fitting a double outdoor socket. The Line cable will be connected to an isolator and then to the double sockets. I have IP68 glands https://www.screwfix.com/p/tower-male-comp-gland-20mm-2-pack/80851?_requestid=738934 to fix to both boxes but I need a bit of conduit between the glands. The
    Tower Round uPVC Black Conduit 20mm x 3m (7980P) https://www.screwfix.com/p/tower-round-upvc-black-conduit-20mm-x-3m/7980p is too big and I cant seem to find any that Screwfix stock that will do the trick.

    Other brands are available !!!

    Any suggestions please. I am sure there is something dedicated to this but I can't find it. I only need about 100mm max

    Thanks in advance.
    Al

    I'm not sure what exactly your trying to achieve here, but these two things arent compatible.

    You would either use the IP68 glands, and have the exposed cable running between the units, or you would use conduits/bushes instead, though potentially those arent going to give you the IP rating you need.

    Perhaps a photo or drawing or something of what your trying to do would help.
