I have heard from a guy in our local club that the ripple wouldn't fit.

Thanks. I was thinking that, however I do have a 2" ferrule welded in......so I would imagine that helps me a bit.

Even the fold back seems to come back pretty close to the end.

Why add one more point of failure?

That is one sweet item. I love Brewers Hardware. I threaded my own 2" TC caps to install my 5500W Camco elements and it is a sweet set up to work with. This item makes it a professional installation by providing a ground and cover.

Did you use the fold back elements? Any trouble with them fitting?

You already have to install the element into something, like the side of you brew pot - that hole is a potential point of failure - it cold leak. Installing a element into one of these fittings adds another potential point of failure - another potential leak point - the cam lock joint.

I'm not used to the term fold back. The ultra low watt density 5500w elements do 'fold back' and have a ripple shape. The fit easily through a 2" TC ferrel.
