Description
 
These Stainless Steel "Cool Touch" fittings are a hybrid between a traditional NPT fitting and a quick disconnect. The female NPT side is cut a little loose so it will fully thread on to any 1/2" male NPT fitting to allow the included captured silicone O-ring to seat and seal. We hesitate to call them quick disconnects because you have to thread them on and off a few rotations just like a garden hose connector, but the one advantage these have is that they don't require a 2-piece design like other disconnect "sets". We call them Cool Touch fittings because the area that you grip to thread the fittings on is wrapped in silicone rubber that doesn't get as hot as the metal.

This particular fitting has a straight 1/2" hose barb on the other end which will accommodate 1/2" ID hoses (and even 3/8" ID silicone stretched over a bit).

Great alternative to another brand March 31, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Small from Wauconda, IL United States  
Fits perfectly on my pump and Rims Rocket. Just as described and appears to be very high quality. Tested them yesterday and there were no leaks or issues. Great product!

Not Great March 5, 2018
Reviewer: Timothy Baker from Houston, TX United States  
On first use the rubber grip became loose, becoming difficult to tighten. This affected nearly half of the ones I bought. I will probably replace these with the Blichmann version.

Poor design November 21, 2017
Reviewer: Jared from United States  
The rubber slides easily so you cannot tighten it very much. Mine is actually stuck on now, as any attempt to unscrew it results in the rubber simply sliding around the metal.

I'm impressed with the quality of this fitting.  My only regret is that I didn't buy a few more of these!
