Grease Tips

April 18, 2017

HERE ARE SOME GREASING TIPS AND IDEAS TO TAKE THE FRICTION OUT OF GREASING:

  1. To ensure long seal life, avoid fittings that have been damaged and may have a small but sharp burr.

  2. Because this new coupler is a little bit longer than the standard coupler it may not reach some confined fittings. Sometimes this can be fixed by replacing the troublesome fitting with a 45 or 90 degree fitting. Or you can take the standard coupler that you replaced and thread a 45 or 90 onto it. Then clip the old coupler to the new coupler. Now you have a handy little adapter at no cost.

  3. When you need to remove the coupler from a pressurized fitting the coupler may be difficult to remove with just pressure from your thumb. To assist in depressing the thumb lever use some sort of pliers-like tool. It will take very little effort to release the coupler. Twisting, tugging and cranking on the coupler to release it will not work and there is a risk of damaging the seal especially if the fitting has some sort of sharp burr.

  4. When the coupler is new the sliding sleeve sometimes needs assistance to slide forward and lock onto the fitting. Just grip the sleeve and just push it forward.
