Using the right tool for the job can spell the difference between hours of frustration or a few minutes of fun. That old saying is true for irrigation tools too. If you need to insert 1/4" transfer barb fittings into 1/4" tubing, the Miracle Transfer Barb Insert Tool for Drip Irrigation from DripWorks is the right tool for the job.
This hose-barb installation tool will spare you lots of fumbling with your fingers and make the task faster and easier. The inserter tool can also work with 1/8" transfer barbs and tubing, but you must use it carefully. The tubing may kink if you press too hard.
This tool isn't a punch and won't insert elbows, cross fittings or tees.
