There are four ways to locate products in the catalogs:

  1. Table of Contents
  2. Part Number Search
  3. Competitor’s Cross Reference Search
  4. Criteria Search

Note: All search engines – part number, criteria and competitor’s cross reference – are located on the same page. You can use the same form to search in the Master Catalog and the Contractor’s Choice Catalog. However, for Tubing and Harnessing products only the Table of Contents can be used.

The Table of Contents for the catalogs are located on the Catalog Start Pages – Master Catalog Start Page, Contractor’s Choice Start Page, Tubing and Harnessing Catalog.

From the start page of each catalog, click on the type of product you need from the contents list. Another contents page will be displayed. Choose an option from this contents page to view a detailed specification page.

Clicking on the Contents link from the top navigation bar or the Table of Contents link from the side navigation bar will return you to the Catalog Start page.
