    I know you can use straps but can you not buy doubles on the same side ?

    Bossed connection not normally used underground. Would normally Tee off 110x110 and reduce to 40mm above ground. Please give further details of installation.

    Why don't you just use two polypipe short boss pipes?

    Why can you not use two of the 110 x 40mm bosses joined together? They will meet up tight, similar to what you showed

    Maybe Kloor`s alternative is the way to go?

    Yep - that shows you what I have in mind for the double connector

    PS my dad calls me "mate" all the time
    PPS the reason for not using 2 bosses is that I just trying to be tight - mind you may cost more to get a double :-)
