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
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.
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.

Are replacement O-rings available for the plugs?
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?
