Cimberio Valve Co. offers FASTLOCK™, a line of malleable iron press fittings for Sch. 10-40 black and galvanized steel pipe. The fittings install with press jaws that are compatible with most press tools on the market, according to the manufacturer. There is no need for threading dies, pipe sealants, or pipe wrenches.

The fittings connect without wrenches, reducing stress on joists and hangers during installation. Available in 0.5- to 2-in. sizes, they are IAPMO and NSF 61-4 certified for use with water, HVAC, and compressed air.
