Connector Thingy

I have no idea what it's real name is. My driver seat is air cushioned. I had to cut the line to remove the seat. There is a metal "sleeve" that is used to join the hoses back together. Can anyone give me the name of that "Thingy" please? And perhaps where to buy one. TY

Sounds like you are talking about a compression union, but I'd suggest a push-to-connect version instead:

Or better yet, a tee and then install a blow gun to clean out the driver's area:

These are just very quick suggestions. I'd look around for the best price and make sure that anything you buy is DOT approved.

Those push to connect fittings are the ticket. Lots of companies make them. We used Festo on some prototype machines so we could change things around. Make sure you cut the end of the tubing square. There are lots of different configurations.

That's what I needed. I could picture them, but couldn't put my finger on their actual name. Now that I know what they are called, I see that they are available everywhere. Thanks
