Metric to Std fittings

My boat plumbing is 15mm hard plastic, slightly bendable, quick connect/release.
I can't find any fittings to connect them to US std (sink, pump, ...). Only 8 or 10mm available.
Found these (picture attached) from China or Russia, 2-3 week delivery, but I'm not ready to give them my credit card. There's gotta be some of those closer by.
Thanks.

Re: Metric to Std fittings

Ok 15mm tube what end connection are you needing
Worst case contact a swagelock tubing distributor
But many well stocked hydraulic hose shop could help you out
Metric tube od isn't that uncommon these days

YES.
Ordered $120 of fittings and tubing. Hope they'll ship right away.
Nice to know there a place I can get more if needed.

Re: Metric to Std fittings

Thanks Daniel! That's a nice order. It will be embarrassing if I don't have it all.
My guy Ronnie is pulling the order now. No UPS today so it will ship tomorrow.

15mm to 1/2" BSP fittings are readily available in the UK.

Re: Metric to Std fittings

Got UPS order delivered today at 3:30.
Saw right away that the safety collets were missing for all the fixtures, 32 of them. You don't sell 15mm collets separately, I was then assuming they came with the connectors.
Called your company at 3:45, answering lady told me the internet sales guy (Ronnie?) had left the building and I'd need to call back Monday. I understand it's Friday, but gimme a break.

Re: Metric to Std fittings

Daniel, I'm sorry you were unhappy with the service.


The Collet Clips are not included with the fittings and I just realized we didn't have them on the website. Most people don't use them because it takes quite a bit of force to release the fitting but the collets are an extra safety. I only have 27 of them in stock but I'll drop them in the mail to you right away. I'll get the rest of them next week. You can go ahead and complete your project and add the clips later. The fittings work fine without them.


Sara is who answers the phone. She says she asked you for the order number but you said you would rather handle it on the internet. She would have tried to help you further if you had let her.


Thank you for pointing out that the 15mm collets are not on the website. I'll put them up tonight. I'll also put a note in the descriptions saying that the collets need to be ordered separately.


I appreciate the order and I'm sorry our service didn't live up to your expectations.

Re: Metric to Std fittings

Please charge me for them.
There's more to the story. You have my email from the order, you can contact me there.
