- The saddle is sized to surround the liner or pipe beyond the spring line, which creates a clamping effect that draws the saddle firmly on to the liner or the pipe.
- The universal LMK Adhesive bonds the saddle to the liner or host pipe, providing a flexible non-leaking main-to-lateral connection. A special two-part adhesive is available for HDPE liners/pipes.
- The saddle is compatible with CIPP and fold and form liners.
- The saddle is also compatible with a variety of pipes including cast iron, clay, concrete, PVC and HDPE.
- A variety of saddle sizes are available - for pipes ranging from 6-24 inches.
- Many saddle sizes are stocked but not all; contact LMK customer service for availability.
