offset nipple
Explanation:
NIPPLE STYLE AND TYPE [BETWEEN DISCONNECT AND RECEPTACLES]

When you come out of the bottom of the disconnect or panel, you will find your bossed receptacle box conduit hole, offset, from the hole at the bottom of your disconnect or panel box. You can usually resolve this situation, by using an offset nipple. The minimum size nipple, for a total number of conductors of three to nine 14 Ga. / or three to nine 12 Ga. THWN conductors, which should be an adequate number for most applications from panel to receptacle paths, is 1/2". Chapter 9 Table 1 Note 4 You could use a 1/2" offset nipple, this offset nipple, will usually make your "existing offset condition" work out, by twisting the offset 1/4 turn, to lessen the depth of offset adjustment needed, in order to meet your receptacle box bossed hub / from your panel box knock out. The minimum size wire to your receptacles, through your offset nipple, from your over-current device [breaker or fuse], is 14 Ga. using a 15 amp maximum size overcurrent device. The minimum size wire to your receptacles, through your offset nipple, from your overcurrent device [breaker or fuse], is 12 Ga. using a 20 amp maximum size overcurrent device. The maximum wire size to a duplex receptacle is 12 Ga. on a 15 or 20 amp receptacle device. A 15 amp receptacle is allowed to serve a 14ga.-15 amp circuit and / or a 12ga.-20 amp branch circuit. Any form of receptacle must be and weather proof and GFCI protected. ARTICLE 305/6/A and B
