Those fittings don't require a collar.

Starting at the end of whatever component you're attaching your tube to, it goes rubber O-ring -> plastic O-ring -> compression ring/thing.




Then you just push the ring down the tubing and start threading it onto the fitting. The rubber O-ring that was on the tube in the above picture creates a seal/suction around the tube and it's actually quite strong. It takes a bit of force to really pull the tube out.



I used these in my build back in February 2015 and I haven't had any leaks to this day, or any other problems. I *think* what I showed is the right way to use them.
