Title: COMPONENT RETAINING STRUCTURE FOR CONDUIT FITTING
Abstract:
A preassembly for a conduit fitting includes an annular fitting component (1814) having an interior wall extending along a central axis from an inboard end to an outboard end, a conduit gripping device (1824) disposed in the annular fitting component and comprising an outer radial surface at a back portion thereof, and a retaining device (1840) having an inboard first interlock portion (1842) that interlocks with the outer radial surface of the conduit gripping device (1824), and an outboard second interlock portion (1845) axially spaced apart from the first interlock portion (1842), the second interlock portion (1845) interlocking with the interior wall of the annular fitting component (1814), such that the retaining device (1840) holds said annular fitting component (1814) and said conduit gripping device (1824) together as a discrete subassembly. The retaining device (1840) has a further interlock portion (1847) that interlocks with the outer surface of a second conduit gripping device (1830) for holding it in said annular fitting component (1814) with said conduit gripping device (1824).
