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 female fitting) and then crimp on this ELEY male 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 male fitting, and 3) a standard 25-foot hose.
- Measuring from the female 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 male fitting onto the cut end of the 17-foot hose.
Make Custom Hoses with Two Male Fittings

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 not tested it on other brand hoses. However, many of our customers have used this tool to attach the ELEY fittings to other brand 5/8-inch ID hoses with excellent success so far. We would not recommend it for any collapsable (or self-retracting) hose or hoses with a metal cover. The tool and fittings are designed for 5/8-inch ID garden hose ONLY.
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.
