RTP – Position Coupler


1 – Peel and thread the end of the reinforcing bars using INCON’s threading machine.

2 – Screw the RTP Coupler completely into the bar of longer thread length.

3 – Align the second bar with the coupler and ensure they are in direct contact with each other.

4 – Rotate the RTP Coupler in the opposite direction until it accommodates the threads on the second bar completely.


RTP Coupler is composed of an internally threaded steel tube and a lock nut that connect two threaded bars of the same size but with different threaded length.


RTP Coupler is suitable for the most challenging connections when rotation in both bars is restricted while the translational movement of only one bar is allowed.


Satisfies the requirements of Type 2 couplers for use with Grade 60 reinforcing bars.
Conforms to major building codes and standards including ACI 318, CSA A23.3, BS 8110 and DIN 1045.
Accurate and fast connection of steel bars that are restricted against rotational movement.
Easily installed and highly efficient for preparing the splice and assembly on site.
Compact design of the coupler to reduce reinforcement congestion.


Uncoated Steel: used with uncoated steel bars in typical construction applications.
Zinc-Coated Steel: used with zinc-coated bars and for other special applications.
Galvanized Steel: used with galvanized steel and for other special applications.
Epoxy-Coated Steel: used with epoxy-coated bars and for other special applications.
