Slammers Inc. was founded in the 1990’s by two journeyman electricians while working on an underground project in Northern Utah. They were stubbing up conduit the usual way – tying the conduits together with tie wire and covering the ends with duct tape. Realizing they would later, after cement, have to come back to increase the spacing between the pipes in order to fit the electrical box, they figured there had to be a better way of doing this. After an unsuccessful search for a product that would accomplish this, they decided to make their own.
Slammers Inc. Quick Caps and Spacers are now being used by thousands of electricians globally. The Quick Cap and Spacer system installs quickly, maintains the proper spacing for the 4 square box, and keeps construction debris and moisture out of the conduit during construction. They have also added another huge time-saving item – the 4 square box clamp. The 4 square box clamp is a must-have for any electrician running conduit in a block wall. The 4 square box clamp installs in seconds without the use of tools and holds the box flush and securely in spite of the abuse it sees from the block layer. The Slammers products work so well because they were designed and built by Electricians for Electricians.

Devin Thomas: This isn’t something that was developed in an office through an engineer or something that thought “that might be a good idea.” This was the guys out there in the trenches, said “You know what? This duct tape and tie wire’s not working. We gotta have something different. So we decided we’ll be those guys and we’ll do that.
25 Year Electrical Contractor: One of the biggest problems we have is trying to keep things squared away, spacing right and straight, not get your conduit full of concrete, gravel, water, whatever.
Bret Adamson: Slammers products – the Quick-Cap and Spacer – will hold that pipe in place, and keep the cap on top of it, keep it safe, through an operation that outlast the rigors of construction.
25 Year Electrical Contractor: I don’t know of another product on the market that does what this does.
Devin Thomas: Our product does what’s best. Not just what’s always been done.
