Maybe I'm blind or the toddler is getting to me but I'm having a ton of trouble finding 90 degree elbow fittings for my PETG tubing rig. My fitting standards are 3/8" ID and 1/2" OD using G1/4 threading. Black preferably.

Links appreciated. Got a pile of parts and bad elbows.

Generally the angled fittings are totally separate from the tubing fittings, I'm assuming that is what is tripping you up. Since they're all G1/4 thread, they're interchangeable no matter what tubing size and type you use.

Some manufacturers (like Bitspower) do make angled fittings that include hard or soft tube fittings in different sizes, but these are less common.

There are tons of options out there. Bitspower probably has the most options, but they're also generally the most expensive. To give you an idea, here's a link to all the different 90 degree Bitspower fittings at Performance PCs... there's almost 200.

For most people, a single rotary 90 degree fitting is what you're looking for. Something like this:

The rotary part just lets you position the fitting as you like and makes install easier. Keep in mind you will need to still use a compression fitting for your tubing in addition to the angled fitting.

Most manufacturers make a variety of angled fittings like this. I'm just using Bitspower as an example.
