Referred to by different names, “Quick-Connect”, “Push-To-Connect”,
or “Push-On” fittings are very easy to use and reuse. Simply push tubing into
fitting... Done! To release the airline simply pull back on the fitting collar
and the airline slides out easily.
Inserting and Removing Airline
TO INSERT: Simply push airline into fitting.
Internal lock claws grab and hold airline
TO REMOVE:Push airline and "release ring"
on fitting down firmly. Then while still holding "release ring"
down pull airline out.
·Make certain the airline is cut perfectly straight by using our Tube
Cutter or a sharp utility knife, do not use scissors as they will crimp the
airline and restrict airflow.
·Before removing the airline, make certain that the pressure
inside the tube is zero. Attempting to remove the airline with pressure will potentially
damage the airline and Push-On fitting.
A Note About Fittings with Threads
Most of our Push-On fittings with threads have sealing compound
applied so there is no need to use pipe thread sealant tape (sometimes referred
to as “Teflon tape”). Those fittings with threads that do not have the sealing
compound will require pipe thread sealant tape applied.
compound shown on threads means the fitting is self-sealing and does not
require pipe thread sealant tape.
will require pipe thread sealant tape to be applied or air will leak from
