This is a swivel adapter to connect a 1/2″ hose to any 1/2″ male pipe thread (NPT).
Use it to connect a hose to the inlet or outlet of a pump with 1/2″ MIP inlet or outlet threads. The large grip-style nut makes it easy to snug up the adapter by hand without tools. This eliminates the possibility of damaging the o-ring by over-tightening with a wrench. This also allows an easy disconnect for cleaning.
Kit contains one adapter (grip & tailpiece), o-ring, and hose clamp.
