Push-Loc Hose

Post  bigjohn2007 on March 22nd 2014, 9:13 pm

Well as usually I'm trying new things. I bought some push-loc hose and fitting thinking I could plum up my reg easy and I got a rude awaking lol. I grease it up with WD-40 and push like hell with the fitting in a vise.#8 got half way and stopped so I put the hulk on it with no results lol,#6 slide right on up to the ring on top of fitting.So could some of you guys explain what has worked the best for you?thanks

I use a small propane torch to heat the hose just a little and spray the fitting before I push it on they are a pain in the rear for sure sometimes

Sorry for your bad luck but I've never really had issues with them.  And we use up to size -20.  I guess all those years of hay hauling pays off.  Laughing

Aeroquip makes a lubricant (oil) for assembly that helps a bit. I have found some can go on reasonably and some are just a real bugger. I used to put the hose in a vise and just leave enough sticking out for the fitting. Then push like hell. I see Koul tools has a vise/press that pushes them in as well. I have also had some luck by turning the hose with the fitting facing down and pushing the hose onto the fitting (use a piece of wood below the fitting and tape it up to protect from scratches.

Here is the tool I have. It's made of plastic and while it flexes it has not broken yet.

Vise press.




After a quick google search I read the best way is to heat the hose in boiling water for about a minute and apparently they slip right on. I also read to use liquid soap not oil because it will dry. (go figure).

I really kind of simulate that tool above.  Not to sound too ridiculous I have a stance.  Fitting in left hand against inside of left knee, hose in right hand with hand against right knee.  Then I press my knees together and force the hose and fittings together while twisting a little (hose, not body, it's not some weird dance or something). 

Don't know if that means anything to anyone but that's what I really do.

Could you post a pic, of that position, some of us might be too old to get in that stance.  Very Happy

I have always just spit on it and pushed it in.  Very Happy  Some lube and muscle.

90* fittings are a bit harder than straights.

With Push-Lock hose, I think it is important to use the same name fittings and hose. You may be already, but just throwing that out there.

I use these at work all the time, especially for air lines.
Only trick I've got that hasn't been covered, is I normally install the fitting either in place or into something stationary and solid before I try putting the hose on.

I've only used aeroquip hose and fittings with earls assembly lube and I have the aeroquip aluminum vise jaw inserts for my vise to hold it and its easy as pie to do, I will say that before the earls lube when I did a car it was hell to do, I actually struggled with some so bad trying to twist the hose on I ripped it. But with the lube its easy , almost too easy like ya think its gonna leak for sure.

I like to use Brake clean or Carb cleaner , something that evaporates when fitting the hose . Makes for a nice tight fit as opposed to a lube that will stay there .

That lube Doesn't stay there , when you cut a hose off there's no trace of it.
