The 1/2" (17 mm) barb elbow is used to connect two ends or to make a 90 degree turn in drip tubing or drip line with .550 ID to .600 ID (17 mm). By using a double barb, the tubing is pushed over the barb for a very tight fit. Use for continuing lengths of drip tubing or drip line and for drip tubing repair.

A little hot water on the .620 tubing and these fit right in. Impressive apparent quality and design: heavy duty and easy to use. Requires above average strength in the hands to make the connection * but yields a high strength bond that's virtually impossible to separate. Used in our nursery for a more precise and uniform installation where multiple tubes are present.
* We found that immersing the last inch and a half of .620 tubing into very hot water for about five seconds reduces the necessary amount of force by about a factor of three, or, it makes it 3 times easier to work with, when hot water is properly used. As the water cools, more time will be needed to soften the plastic, until it is no longer hot enough. We use a wide mouth thermos and refill it periodically when resting between long runs and preparing more fittings. Simple when mastered and a great deal of satisfaction upon completion, heating reduces the needed strength to make the connection, probably allows a more conforming, physical bond between the two materials upon cooling, and increases the likelihood of a more professional-looking installation. Have fun!

17 mm Barb Fittings

The 1/2" (17 mm) barb fittings are used in the installation of any brand name drip line or drip tubing. To connect the 1/2" (17 mm) drip tubing or drip line, use a hand pruner to cut the drip tubing or drip line, being careful to keep dirt from entering the drip tubing. Insert the barb side of the fitting into the end of the 1/2" drip tubing or drip line by forcing the drip tubing over the barb side.
