YIKES on a product I recommended

  1. Well they turned out to be too good to be true. Maybe the rep will step in and clarify.

    These are Direct Connects for funny pipe. Push on rather than insert. Henry found one blown apart in two pieces on a job. We figured one was an abberation. Then yesterday on another job he found two more blown out. We threw all we had away right then and there.

    Boots is right, there is a product called "blue loc" or something,
    that needs it's own size swing pipe. Made for people with weak wrists.
