    Off topic but sure looks like whatever is inside that box might be very crowded. Might be code legal if all under 4 AWG or is communications cables or something, but likely still very crowded.

    Im not a fan of the threaded coupling outside the box and screw a connector into that to secure it method. Just use a threaded connector, that's all you need if you line your conduit up square to the box

    The box adapter we are referring to glues into a coupling.

    Butt the coupling to the KO, and this piece inserts through the enclosure into the coupling. The lip holds the conduit to the enclosure, and you now have a flush entry instead of threads coming up.

    Huh! I've seen something like that a few times, but I always thought some guy just rigged something up with a reducer or something like that. It looks like it makes a pretty good "mechanical" connection when that glue dries.

    I'm guessing they cost a few more dollars than a connector and locknut for the larger size conduits?

    Maybe. Cannot tell from pic, it will be one of the two methods.

    I would guess that those are terminal adapters and locknuts used in your pic.

    They also come in handy if you have the nose of an LB that is right against a cabinet, with no room to add a TA.
