The MegaPress Pipe End Preparation Tools will no longer be included in MegaPress Kits, however, they are still sold separately. RIDGID Press Tools, Jaws, Rings and Prep Tools are built for the most demanding applications and are backed by the RIDGID Lifetime Warranty. In addition, all RIDGID MegaPress Jaws, Rings and Prep Tools were jointly developed and tested with Viega MegaPress fittings.

RIDGID is the leader in steel pipe pressing technology. MegaPress is a flameless system that eliminates the need for hot work permits. Press connections can be made on a “wet” system.
