Question: How do I Install a Quick Connect Fitting?

By

Quick Connect Fitting

Answer: Across a host of applications, “quick connect” products require no special tools. Simply cut the tube square and insert it into the fitting to effect a secure and reliable connection. Thus, this type of fitting has become the water industry’s most popular fitting products because they offer the most reliable and cost effective solution to tubing connections. Above is a diagram of how to install “quick connect” fittings. We have displayed the Mur-lok diagram, however these instructions are applicable to all “quick connect” fittings regardless of the manufacturing brand.


Insert tube into fitting

Push the tubing through the collet and O-ring until it bottoms out against the tube stop. The collet holds the tube in place and the O-ring provides a leak resistant seal.

Test and inspect

Push and pull the tubing toward and away from the fitting to ensure that it has been installed properly. Test and inspect the installation for any leaks.

Tube Removal

Relieve pressure from the tubing and fitting. Push uniformly around the collet flange against the fitting body while pulling the tubing away from the fitting to release it.
