Make Custom-Length Garden Hose

You can create a custom-length hose by cutting a standard-length garden hose to the desired length (measuring from the male fitting) and then crimp on this ELEY female fitting. Standard lengths of ultra-durable ELEY polyurethane garden hose (in feet) are 6-1/2, 12, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, and 200 feet. For example, say you want a 17-foot hose.

  • Buy 1) the ELEY Repair Tool, 2) this ELEY female fitting, and 3) a standard 25-foot hose.
  • Measuring from the male fitting, cut the 25-foot hose down to a 17-foot length. View Hose Cutting Details
  • Using the ELEY repair tool, crimp the new ELEY female fitting onto the cut end of the 17-foot hose.

Make Custom Hoses with Two Female Fittings

Need a hose equipped with two female fittings? No problem. Cut off the male fitting and, using our repair tool, crimp this fitting on in its place.

Frequently Asked Questions - Female Hose Repair Fitting

Can I buy the ELEY polyurethane garden hose without fittings on the ends?

No. We only sell our polyurethane hose in finished, standard-length assemblies, which include one male and one female fitting.

Does ELEY still make custom-length hoses?

No. Instead, we now offer this repair tool, our full-flow & lead-free brass fittings, and our standard-length polyurethane garden hose from which you'll be able to make your own custom-length hose. Because of the labor-intensive processes involved in making custom-length hoses, we charged considerably more per foot than our standard-length hoses. With this process, you'll end up with two custom-length hoses (should you also choose to crimp a fitting onto the other cut length) and a garden hose fitting repair tool that can be used to install factory-quality crimped fittings onto almost any brand of garden hose for years to come. No more cheap after-market fitting repairs from the big box or hardware stores. 

Do the fittings and the repair tool work in repairing non-ELEY brand hoses?

We have tested our repair tool and fittings on many hose brands, but not all of them. The outside diameter (OD) range of 5/8-inch hose for effective use with the ELEY garden hose repair fittings is 0.85 to 0.90 inches. We would not recommend it for any collapsible (or self-retracting) hose, hoses with a metal cover, or hoses that have a multi-sided cover, like the one pictured. The tool and fittings are designed for a 5/8-inch ID garden hose ONLY.

What is the MIN and MAX hose OD measurements for these repair fittings to work?

A successful repair isn’t so much dependent on the outside diameter (OD) of the hose as it is the wall thickness. Minimum thickness would be 0.10 inch and maximum would be 0.15 inch.  Circular hose shapes only, no polygons. If it is more convenient for you to use the outside diameter (OD) of 5/8-inch hose for effective use with the ELEY garden hose repair fittings, you'll want to look for an OD measurement from 0.85 to 0.90 inches.

Are the fittings drinking water safe?

Yes. Our fittings are made from lead-free brass and are 100% drinking water safe.

Do you offer a tool and repair fittings in a 3/4-inch ID?

No. Sorry. 5/8-inch ID hose only. 

Are any other tools needed with this repair tool? 

We provide a hex key wrench for use with the repair tool. You can speed the process up by using a power drill with a 5 mm hex bit.  You'll need to use a cutting tool of your choice for cutting the garden hose, where you'll press on and attach the new ELEY fitting.
