Description
 
If you want to install a dial thermometer in a double wall cooler, you'll need an extended bulkhead like these. Here's how they work: The dial thermometer threads directly into the open end of the coupling. The coupling extends through the outside wall and insulation of the cooler and then the weldless bushing/gasket seals to the interior wall of the cooler. This 1/2" NPT version requires a 1-1/8" hole in the outside wall of the cooler and a 13/16" hole in the interior wall. The weldless bushing piece in this assembly is custom machined just for us so this isn't something that can be easily made from "off the shelf" parts.

Keep in mind that this bulkhead is NOT meant for draining liquid out of your cooler.

The picture below shows the application of this bulkhead for use with a dial thermometer. The picture shows both available sizes.

1 of 5 1/2" locknut not large enough January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Justin M from Columbus, OH United States  
I just installed the 1/2" model on my HD rubbermaid cooler. The threaded locknut that sits inside the cooler wall is too small to adequately compress the gasket. I got a solid leak while testing this, even with a very snug 13/16 inside hole. The gasket warps and twists when you tighten down, not getting a solid seal.

From the looks of it, the 1/4" model may compress alright, but this 1/2" model clearly needs a washer included. When comparing to my other kettle weldless, the larger locknut is used there with the same size gasket. That one makes a nice seal, while this is pretty flimsy.

5 of 5 Excellent fit November 16, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from havertown, PA United States  
Fit my 10 gallon Igloo cooler perfectly. I added a larger washer as the supplied one seemed a little small.
