Get a Grip! An Introduction to Hose Barbs

Fittings with hose barbs offer a simple, dependable and inexpensive means for terminating tubing or hoses. Hose barb fittings may have one barb or several barbs (see figures below). Barbs may be spaced evenly or with extra space behind, between or in front of each barb. The fitting itself may be constructed of various plastic or metal materials and have barbs in different configurations. All of these subtle differences are meant to improve the seal and grip for the various grades of tubing available on the market.
