Tube Fitting Installation

Installing a Compression Tube Fitting can be an easy and simple process. Simply follow the steps listed below.

  1. Firmly insert the tubing until it bottoms in the tube fitting body.
  2. Finger tighten the nut.
  3. Mark the nut at the 6 o'clock position with a pencil.
  4. Hold the body with a backup wrench or vice, then tighten the nut.
  5. Turn the nut 1.25 turns, stopping at the 9 o'clock position.

To reassemble a tube fitting, simply insert the tube assembly into the tube fitting body, tighten the nut to the original position (as indicated by the previous mark), then snug the nut slightly with a wrench.
