What is Push-Lock Hose End?
SPELAB Push-Lock Hose End, or (Push-On Hose End Fitting) is versatile, oil-resistant, and requires no clamps to assemble when used with special push-lock fittings. It is offered in various colors for easy identification. The silicone-free tube will not contaminate the fluid conveyed. The flame-resistant cover is MSHA approved.
Push on barbed fittings are for use with a soft rubber hose or "sockless" hose. Hose and fittings are easy to install: they simply push on with some heat and lubricant, and "lock" in place. The hose will not slide off the fitting easily because it compresses on the fitting as pressure increases. Hose clamps, such as worm clamps or Oetiker clamps, are required to ensure the hose does not back off.
Fittings are black anodized aluminum. The max temperature and pressure rating for the assembled hose depends on the specifications of the hose. For fuel, be sure to use SAE J30 R9 (external to fuel tanks) or R10 (internal to fuel tanks) rated hose.
SPELAB Push-Lock Hose End is not compatible with PTFE Hose, Nylon Braided Hose, or Stainless Steel Braided Hose.
