The title says it all. Here's a link so you know what im talking about: Non-Angled Rotary Fitting Thanks

The base has a rotary element that allows the tubing and compression connection to spin 360° so tubing bend pressure won't unscrew your fittings!

Well it says right in the description that it eliminates the risk of bend pressure unscrewing the fitting.

Had mine unscrew once, luckily I was still leak testing and just cut a new piece of tubing and moved one. Personally $4 extra isn't worth it.

I can't imagine my tubing exerting enough force to unscrew my fittings; they're tightened pretty well. I wouldn't worry about it.

Alright Thanks

I use it on the reservoir top lid (with inlet tubing), so I can unscrew the lid to top up my coolant with an ease.

That would make sense. Didnt even give thought to that, but what would you need to open your res for once its filled and running?

After the initial fill, there're usually small bubbles still trapped in the loop (e.g. tubing). Over time with normal usage, they get loosen and reach the reservoir. Thus, the coolant level drops. This is normal even with the tilting/shaking of the case during the initial run. smile.gif

I don't have any picture of the current setup. Only got the old loop pics with 60 degree angle fitting on top of the res. But this should give you the idea...
