These male NPT connectors feature a cone shaped inset on the face of the male threaded end. This helps fluid or gasses mak a smooth transition to and from the flexible braided line. All Mako braided hose connections are made from durable 316L stainless steel for longevity and reliability. These are also equipped with an extra heavy machined crimp ferrule on the hose side.
These fittings are currently available in 1/4", 3/8", & 1/2", but 3/4" and 1" are coming and will be available soon.
Coming soon, we will also be stocking adapter fittings that up sizes or down size the connection ends. This means that if a larger fitting is ordered on a smaller hose, like 1/2" connections on a 3/8" hose, it could restrict the flow compared to an assembly of 1/2" fittings on a 1/2" hose. These fittings are intended to be used for assembling adapter hoses. Installing two over sized fittings on a smaller hose size should only be considered if a higher pressure rating or tighter bend radius is required.
