So, you know when you’re fixing up your ride or tinkering with your gadgets, and you need to connect stuff together? That’s where hoses and fittings come into play. They’re the unsung heroes of the mechanical world. A flexible pipe lets stuff flow through it, whether it’s water, oil, or whatever you need.

Then there are fittings, which bring everything together. They work on machines that use a lot of power, like tractors and excavators.

You might think all hoses and fittings are the same, but that’s not true. This guide explains the differences between them. How you clamp the hoses varies.

You’ll find JIC, seal face o-ring, and NPT. JIC are the most common kind and are easy to use. Seal face o-ring variants aren’t as good. It’s easy to squeeze them too tight and then they leak. NPT fittings don’t seal properly. As for hoses, there are low-pressure hoses, and single and double-braided hoses. Double braided versions are the most common and can handle a lot of pressure.

When clamping them, make sure the new hose is just as long as the old one. Use a special tool to cut the hose and make the edge slanted, so it’s easier to fit the spiky thing on. Next, put a mark on the hose with a marker to show how far it goes in. After that, you put some special oil on the inside. Watch this video to find out more about hoses and fitting services
