Qwik-Lok Overcomes Age-Old Hose Install Issues

November 2020 News

For common water plumbing systems using flexible hose, traditional barbed fitting connections with hose clamps are slow to install and often awkward to reach. And when they fail, it can cause anything from an annoying drip to a serious flooding problem. Engineered to save time, the Qwik-Lok™ from Flow-Rite is the modern solution. Whether for refit or new build, it provides fast, easy coupling/uncoupling with the assurance that it won't leak.

Available for industry-standard 3/4", 1-1/8", and 1-1/2" hose, the Qwik-Lok connector consists of a male end with an O-ring and a female end with latching arms and locking ring. It comes in straight and 90˚ configurations. The ends can be fitted before plumbing is run since final connections require no tools—only pushing the ends together, then sliding the locking ring with a thumb and forefinger. Removal is just as easy. This saves vast time and frustration, especially in hard-to-reach areas where crimping or screwing is difficult.

Unlike traditional methods, Qwik-Lok allows the hose to swivel, relieving torque stress. Made in the USA from durable, marine-grade polypropylene, it's built for use with fresh, salt or black water. 

For OEM, boatyard and DIY use, Qwik-Lok from Flow-Rite enables quality connections in less time with fewer materials. MSRP starts at $4.30. Flow-Rite also offers complete OEM kits with pre-cut hose and other components.
