    Default What's holding the inlet pipes in this picture?

    Hey,

    Sorry if this has been asked...couldn't find it in a search 'cause I don't know what it's called. What's the technical name for the strap-like stuff holding the inlet pipes as they come out, and are the pipes soldered to it?

    I didn't see this stuff at the big boxes.

    Pic is from a post Terry Love made a while back about double vanities, just to give photo credit, there.

    Thanks

    The official name escapes me. I just call it a copper pipe strap. I see it at the depot all the time.

    THEY ARE CALLED HOLDRITE STRAPS, AND YES THE COPPER STUP OUTS
    ARE SOLDER IN PLACE TO KEEP COPPER FROM MOVEING BACK AND FORTH

    Personally I'd tie a block in behind the cold stub, the strap won't do well to keep the stub from moving.

    Default straps

    HoldRite is one name. When you solder them, heat the tubing not the strap, or you will burn the copper plating off the strap.
