600 SERIES DIRECT-LOC COUPLING: DL-C600
Known as Easy Loc, Perma Loc or Spin-Loc, the 600 series Direct-Loc Coupling from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation to connect two ends of both half inch 700 & 710 series solid drip tubing or 700 series Soaker Hose Dripline.
Unlike compression fittings, Direct-Loc fittings are removable and are useful if you need to:
- Reconfigure your drip irrigation system
- Reuse your drip irrigation fittings
- Remove and store drip tubing for the winter.
Installing a Direct-Loc coupling is quick and easy.
To begin, simply cut your drip tubing with a pair of clippers or scissors. Make a straight cut across the pipe to ensure a tight fit. Turn the Loc ring towards the base of the fitting, exposing the barb. Place your drip tubing over the barb and press inward. Then reverse the Loc ring and tighten, locking the tubing into place. Glue or Teflon tape is not required.
When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.
For a less expensive alternative, consider our 1/2 compression couplings. They come in three different sizes: 620 Raindrip series with green rings, 700 series with black rings and 710 series with blue rings.
To adjust or stop the flow of water through inch solid poly tubing or inch soaker hose dripline, use our Direct-Loc Flow Control Valve.
The C600 Direct-Loc coupling is just one in a full line of half inch Direct-Loc fittings available from Irrigation Direct.
