Color alert markersHere's a handy, low-cost way to make sure there are no mistakes when hooking up multiple hydraulic hose connections. Just put matching "Color Alert" marker tags on all matching male and female connections.
"Even inexperienced operators can make complicated hookups without any problem, thanks to these new color-coded markers," the manufacturer points out. "The self-locking plastic ties will usually outlast the hose to which they're attached. When you replace the hose, we suggest putting on new color markers since the old ones are virtually impossible to remove, except with a knife."
Markers are available in 8 different colors. A starter packet of 8 markers (2 red, 2 blue, 2 yellow and 2 brown) sells for $2, plus 50 cents per order for postage and handling. Packets of eight markers are also available in all of the same color, or in four of one color and four of another.
