A hose barb fitting is a type of connector placed at the end of a hose to connect or grip with another hose or device. The barb is a raised ridge or bumps on the fitting that grips the inside diameter of a tube, sealing the connection.
There are many advantages to barb fittings. Examples include:
Creates A Secure Connection
Tight space configurations
Easy To Install
Resistant To Blow Off
Minimal Maintenance Is Required
