  • The stem part that is clamped to the hose is the other half
  • The two halves are connected or disconnected by rotating the wing nut on the spud, when connected they achieve both a mechanical and a pressure seal
  • Easy to seal
  • Use with boss ground joint fittings
  • Leakproof seal forms when the metal head of the stem makes contact with the patented polymer seat in the spud
