[br]A littly off topic but the closest i do to steeling pvc is putting all the bushings inside the other parts. Works all the time with people. But i would go any further than that. Goes to show how people really need to "pay attention"

<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">Heck ya, I always do that. I usually pull it off by screwing the threaded endcap into the female adapter, then ramming a reducing bushing into the unthreaded side of the adapter. Sometimes they notice that all of the stuff needs to be rang up, but the clerk usually gives up after he/she can't get the parts apart by using just their hands.

I hate it when the people there jump on you the second you get in there like they are going to shoot you if you dont say what you want. Then once you get what you want than they grab the part from you and take it to the cash register expecting you are done shopping. Yeesh I like help but I dont need some one being a smartass and breathing all down my neck.

Today I went to super cheap and I couldnt find the ignition coils so I asked some girl and she asked "rabbit boy" who then showed me were they were, and he was like
"Ahh, do ya tink dis will be right?" and I said,
"Doesnt matter buddy, it's not for a car"
"What den?"
"A spud gun"
"Man, theyre [intercourse]in unreal!"

That's so easy, just peel off the upc sticker off all but one and make sure a teenage girl rings it up. They never care.

Same with mine too, and the cashiers are smart. When I leave pieces together (not trying to scam them, just makes it easier to carry) they just turn whatever parts that I have stuck together around until they get all the barcodes, they don't even try to pull them appart.

In here, the cleanout cap comes with the cleanout adapter, so there's no barcode on it. If I want to use a female adapter, I would also have to buy the cap, which has an impossible-to-remove-without-a-mess barcode. So I put the cap from the cleanout in the female adapter and, voilà. Only once the cashier got suspicious and called the plumbing dept guy, and he said it was ok. hehe

Just a question for you guys who scam like that, how do you get the pieces back apart to weld together?
