RIDGID Releases RP 241 Compact Press Tool with RLS Press Jaws for HVACR

RIDGID has released the RP 241 Compact Press Tool which is now available with RLS Press Jaws for the HVACR side of the industry.

Designed to press ¼” to 1⅜” copper, the Jaws, when paired with the RP 241, improve productivity by cutting installation time by up to 60% compared to traditional connection methods.


The Jaws, designed for use with RLS fittings, were developed in partnership with RLS creators of the first press-to-connect fitting systems for high pressure HVACR projects. Their fittings are fully registered and listed to UL207 for pressures up to 700psi.

“At RIDGID we’re continuously looking for new ways to make our tools more useful on the jobsite. These new Jaws not only enhance efficiency, but also provide an opportunity for contractors to expand their press services,” RIDGID for Emerson product manager Joe Devries says.

“We’re excited to partner with RLS to bring the RP 241 Compact Press Tool, Jaws and Fitting innovation our brands are known for to the HVACR industry.”

The RP 241 boasts a low-profile design that is lightweight and balanced. It also features an ergonomic design to help users easily work in tight spaces. Bluetooth connectivity connects the tool to the RIDGID Link app, which allows users to track number of cycles, battery information and much more.

Along with RLS Jaws, the RP 241 is compatible with all RIDGID Compact Series jaws, rings and actuators and can press up to 32mm on copper and stainless steel; up to 40mm on PEX tubing; and up to 25mm carbon steel.

All RIDGID press tools come with a full limited lifetime warranty and RLS fittings are backed by a 15-year limited warranty.
