Figure 5-49.—Bending a conduit saddle bend. SADDLE BENDS.—Saddles may be necessary when obstructions (fig. 5-49) are encountered. The most common method of straddling an obstacle is the three-bend saddle, using a 45-degree center bend and two opposing 22 1/2-degree bends. All measurements begin with locating the center of the obstruction on the conduit and marking it as Point A. Table 5-4 shows shrinkage factors and distances for marks "B" and "C." The formula is from mark “A,” add 3/16 of an inch times saddle depth and distance from mark “A” to marks "B" and "C" = 2.5 inches times saddle depth. Figure 5-49 is an example of placing a 4-inch saddle around a conduit that is 15 inches from a junction box. Following the bending sequence shown, pay close attention  to  the  orientation  of  the  bender  head. Remember to use the star arrow on the bender to align Point A for the 45-degree center bend and the front arrow to align the bender with marks "B" and "C" for the 22 1/2-degree bends. Be sure to line up all bends in the same plane. This procedure is true of all bends, not just a saddle.
