O'lets are an American invention, from Bonney Forge. They are a family of integrally reinforced branch connections. Thread-o'lets are internally threaded with male NPT. Sock-o'lets have a socket welding opening, and Weld-o'lets are a butt-weld connection. They address the reinforcement necessary to make a branch connection onto a heavy-wall large pipe. Usually a coupling is sufficient for branch openings in STD or Sch 40 pipe, and is usually insufficient on Sch 160. The o'lets are heavy enough that no calculations are required, and no further reinforcement needed.

Please see tha attached web address.
