- They are very reliable.
- They very easy to use.
- Work with both tubing and nozzle stems.
- With quick-connect fittings, connecting and disconnecting is done in a breeze,
and you don't have to hassle with unscrewing and screwing old fashioned connectors.
- insert the tube into the mouth of the fitting and push all the way in until it stops. It will lock in automatically.
- Note: If by any chance you notice a water leak at the mouth of a Quick-Connect Fitting, most probably the tube was not pushed all the way in, give it a further push in, and that should stop the leak.
TIP: If you have an old metal fork, you can break one of its center teeth, then the gap between the two adjacent teeth will be about 1/4" which you can slip around the tube or the Stem-Nozzle, and get a better hold with the fork, giving you an extra leverage to disconnect.
- Push the Collet (ring) at the mouth of the fitting, toward the fitting, and simultaneously pull the tube out of it.
- Note: If it gives you a hard time, try pushing the tube into the fitting first, and then repeat the above step, this should release the grip of the stainless Steel teeth inside the fitting.
