MTM Hydro Stainless Steel Quick Connect Plug offers you a anti-corrosive Quick Connect system for your pressure washer.
These plugs are great for quickly disconnecting spray guns, lances, tips, foam cannons or pressure washing attachments.
All of our fittings will come pre-taped with 7 wraps of tape ready for you to connect.
When purchasing plugs and couplers, the Male model has exposed threads while the Female version has threads on the interior of the fitting.
All MTM Stainless Plugs are National Pipe Thread (NPT) which means they usually have a tapered Male or Female thread (depending upon the model). When installing NPT fittings to another NPT thread we recommend that you use 4-5 wraps of teflon tape wound clockwise, or 2-3 drops of Loctite thread sealant.
British Standard Pipe Thread (BSP) is found in the European market and has a different thread pitch than NPT. BSP is also considered a ‘straight thread’ which means it has no taper at the end. When installing NPT on BSP or vice versa, use 6-7 wraps of Teflon or 2-3 drops of Loctite and tighten accordingly.
We know sometimes this may sound confusing, however, as a summary of the above, NPT and BSP are compatible with each other, it is just useful when looking at how many wraps of tape is needed for the threads.
