Abstract : The patent relates to a pipe coupling including male and female attachment members connected to a pair of tubular sections which are to be coupled. The female attachment member includes a circumferential groove formed interiorly therein while the male attachment member includes a reduced diameter portion whose outer diameter is smaller than the inner diameter of the female attachment member and which has an outwardly extending lip formed at the edge. This will interfere with the female attachment member on assembly. Adhesive is deposited on the outer surface of the reduced diameter portion and on the inner surface of the female member and upon assembly, the male member is inserted into the female member until the lip snaps into the groove whereupon both a mechanical and adhesive connection is attained.
