These anodized aluminum joiners are designed for splicing together our 38mm / 1.5" ID silicone hose. Use them to connect any two 38mm ID hoses.
To install, simply slip one hose over one end of the nipple until it just touches the centering bead. Slip the second hose over the other end until the two hoses meet in the middle. We highly recommend Gates Heat Shrink clamps since they match the black silicone and give it a seamless look
Gates Heat Shrink Clamps (We've used these on our race cars)
Each end of the joiner has multiple small ridges on the outside, plus one large bead at the end to ensure good retention when used with our T-Bolts or Gates Heat Shrink clamps. The ridges and the backside of the bead are carefully radiused to avoid cutting into the hose. A single bead in the center helps you to center the joiner between the two hoses. For a nice finishing touch, the inside diameter has a small elliptical radius at each end to minimize resistance to fluid flow. 2.1" long overall. Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and protected with a clear satin anodizing for outstanding corrosion resistance. Sold individually.
