    I've never seen a 1/4" fitting like that.
    What the heck kind of sprinkler head would run off of 1/4" anyway?! A 2" radius head? :confused:

    If you have a "head" that runs off of 1/4" tube, it will probably be taking spaghetti line, and not a threaded end, certainly not at 1/4". How about a picture.

    This is the closest to your tee that you can get.

    Actually, I think it is 1/2 inch but the part I have is black and smaller in measurement then the grey one I've seen that is 1/2 inch.

    See attachment, sprinkler head just screwed on top.

    Not a common item - you might need to make it from more than one fitting. Use what you can get, and don't obsess over obscurities.
