EMT & Flexible metal conduit


1. Is there a special screwdriver to use when connecting emt connectors.

The screws look like Phillips but they have a square in the center. I ended up using a flathead, but it wasn’t a perfect fit

2. I had to use some FMC (greenfield) at the end of my run. As much as I turn the screw on the fmc connector, it does really seem to snug up the fmc. I vaguely recall someone telling me to use thin wire to secure the fmc to the connector.

3. Are there floor flanges for emt? Something to support the weight of emt. I have a fairly long vertical run. 30’

Square screws are called Robertson.

Found some EMT floor flanges - aka emt riser clamps.
