Using DuoTight Compatible Locking Clips To Fix Leaks

Kegland’s DuoTight Fittings are designed to work with EVABarrier Double Wall Tubing.  They offer quick, reliable connections, easy implementation, a variety of fitting options and feature amazing versatility.  They’re also, generally speaking, very well priced.  DuoTights are push to connect fittings and require no tubing clamps.

DuoTights are… awesome.  Check out my extensive Hands on Review

I’ve done several pressure tests with DuoTight Fittings and EVABarrier Tubing. Each test has proven the tested components were leak free. Having said that, it’s entirely possible that you’ll have a leak. This happens with any tubing system, that’s why we… check for leaks.

I have a write up for addressing DuoTight Leaks that will walk you through some things to check.

One of the things that I do that really helps is use Valuebrew’s DuoTight Compatible Locking Clips. These snap into the collar of DuoTight Fittings and lock connections in place. This makes the connection more secure and reduces the chances of leakage.

DuoTight Fittings have a collar that’s engaged and disengaged to connect and remove tubing without tools or clamps.  That collar can accept a locking clip to prevent the connection from disengaging.  These are not required for a solid connection and are not part of the official DuoTight lineup.
