Anti-kink coils for 3/8" tubing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Everyone I have seen on this forum doesn't use them. I thought maybe it is because of 1/2" tubing. Should I use them? Are they necessary?

No you don't need them, unless you have some really tight bends to make...Thats what they are used for, to keep the tubing from kinking...I just use a zip-tie or two on the kinks in mine, straightens them back out fine...

I use them for mine. It all really depends on the thickness of your tubing- the difference between ID and OD. The thicker the tubing, the harder it is to kink it. The Masterkleer 7/16" tubing I use has a medium thickness, so I need to use anti kink coils in some spots, it also adds some flare to it.

Some people really like the look of anti-kink coils. Others don't.

We carry them in a variety of sizes and colors, so it shouldn't be too hard to find what you need.
