    Garden Hose Quick Connect Sets

    Heavy-Duty Materials & Components

    The Eley Quick Connect System is made from commercial grade, lead-free brass for long-lasting use. The revolutionary design uses two sliding stainless-steel bars to lock the plug and socket into a leak-proof connection. We also use an O-ring style gasket for sealing the socket to the garden hose or faucet. The innovative design provides years of durable, leak-free performace and is 100% drinking-water safe.

    Easy Usability

    Our quick connects have standard garden thread fittings making them suitable to work with any garden hoses and watering tools. Additionally, the quick couplers deliver an unobstructed full 3/4" flow of water volume, allowing for faster and stronger water output. The easy release slide smoothly disengages the plug from the socket for a quick exchange of attachments or moving to a different faucet. 

    Sealing in 10 Years, Guaranteed.

    Much like our other products, ELEY guarantees 10 years of use with our quick connect system. Thanks to the durable O-ring seal it ensures there will be NO leaks for an entire decade of use. And for the best results, apply ELEY Silicone Grease on the O-ring to keep the quick connect system operating at its optimal performance.

    Common Questions

    Are replacement O-rings available for the plugs?

    Yes.  They are Item #3041.  We also recommend purchasing a tube of ELEY Silicone Grease, which is designed explicitly for our O-ring material. Periodically applying a thin coating of this 100% silicone grease to the O-rings will extend their life and improve performance.

    Does the socket stop the water flow when I remove the plug from it?

    No.  The plug cannot be removed while under pressure.  The water pressure must be first turned off before the quick-connect set can be separated.  There are two methods of doing this.  First, by shutting the water off back at the faucet/water source.  The second method is to install a ball valve directly before the socket. (See photo) This will allow you to shut the water off right at the quick-connect set, without having to return to the faucet/water source. Eley offers two garden hose ball valves that work perfectly for this application, our straight Garden Hose Ball Valve and our Swivel Garden Hose Ball Valve.

    How will these perform in freezing temperatures?

    You'll likely have some difficulty.  Even with water flowing in freezing environments, it doesn't take much moisture to cause the brass parts to stick together. In particular, it may be challenging to get the sleeve on the socket to slide to disengage the plug.  The quick-connect sets were designed to operate in above freezing conditions.

    Is this item drinking water safe?

    Yes.  Water flowing through your ELEY reels, hoses, and watering tools stays pure because we use only 100% drinking water-safe internal component materials. From the lead-free brass and rubber seals, down to the assembly lube—it’s all safe.

    Are they compatible with other brands of quick-connectors?


    What maintenance is required?

    Depending on the frequency of use, the O-rings on the plugs should periodically be coated with a thin layer of Silicone Grease. This will not only improve the performance of the quick-connect set but also increase the life of the O-rings.
