The History

The original patent was Will Mont Tompion’s of 1863 to plug the end of musket barrels during the Civil War. In the 1960s the same design was adapted to make a plug for ceramic sewer pipes which is inconsistent in diameter and roundness. The Hand-tite® plug has a very flexible expansion range to compensate for the irregular inside diameter of the ceramic pipe.
