    I have used them that way more often than with a coupling.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    Based on appearance of how short it is relative to its width, I'm going with it being a male adapter and a lock ring inside.
    A female adapter would be as long as a coupling, and probably have ribs on the threaded end.

    As electrofan says, it is a box adapter and I just found something out the hard way. The metal of a box is too thin for a box adapter to seat all the way down on a coupling, so the termination is loose by about 3/16" Sucks, and it happened at my own house!


    I know what I don't know, and I know where to go to find it!
