The heating element assembly may also be used in kettles that already have NPS or Tri-Clover (Tri-Clamp) fittings attached
I did not see any elaboration, however, other than "Use a 1" NPS female to Tri-Clover adapter." The link takes me to Amazon where I might be able to find such a thing with perseverance
Does this screw onto the element on the other side of the box as a replacement for the 1" nut?
Anyone have a picture of such a setup so make it simple for me since I'm so dense?
Can anyone recommend a 1" NPS to a 2" TC?
Finally: If I'm going about this the wrong way, let me knowI know there are all in one solutions I can buy for ~$60 but I like the idea of having something that's not built with proprietary parts.
Also, I don't know if I have ever posted here before so this may also be my "Hi everyone, new here! post.
ETA: I guess I have 12 posts here. Who knew? _________________ -- Lee in KC

Scroll down to the section:
MY KETTLE HAS A TRI-CLOVER (SOMETIMES CALLED TRI-CLAMP) FITTING FOR AN ELEMENT. HOW DO I ATTACH THE HEATING ELEMENT ASSEMBLY?
It explains how to use the adapter. Here's a quote:
"Use a 1" NPS female to Tri-Clover adapter (usually supplied by your kettle manufacturer, see picture below). Simply screw the adapter on to the element threads. Make sure to use PTFE white teflon tape on the element threads to ensure a tight, leak-free fit (see this video) and seal on the inside of the box between the heating element and box cover with the food grade silicone adhesive/sealant (also included). See our secure the heating element assembly instructions for a picture. To fasten the element to the kettle use a tri-clover clamp as you would normally. The washer, nut, and o-ring supplied with your DIY kit are not used."
