Compression fittings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just got my pack of black chrome monsoon compression fittings and i really like them biggrin.gif coupled with the primoflex lrt white tube looks nice i think... all to go in my brand new 800D... though getting the monsoon fittings apart are a nightmare you can't undo the compression ring it just spins the whole barb out >.<<br />



Also got a heap of lutro0 white paracord on its way which may end up been very time consuming to sleeve everything

I have the same monsoon fittings. A tip I can offer is snug the barb using the tool, then when your putting your compression ring on only tighten it with your fingers. Should solve your problem of spinning the barb and everything all at once. Finger tight is plenty for the ring, plus it gets rid of the chance of scratching the ring with the monsoon tool.

When removing the collar try holding the tubing close to the fitting firmly with one hand whilst undoing the collar. Should stop the fitting unscrewing from the port.
