Color coded fasteners for hydraulic hosesYou can prevent wrong hookups of hydraulic hoses with new color coded fasteners available from Davco Lineloc, Harpster, Ohio.
The fasteners permanently pair, identify and color code any size hydraulic hose. Unlike other marking systems on the market, each of the fasteners is marked with an L and an R to signify "left" and "right" or "lower" and "raise", as needed. Each fastener also is marked with arrows that indicate the flow of oil.
"These fasteners save wasted time tracing hoses to the proper outlet," says David Herring, farmer-inventor. "The 3-choice marking system is unique and the fasteners are inexpensive at under $2 each. You won't have to climb on and off the tractor, or get spilled oil on your hands and clothes, trying to make the right hose hookups."
To install, first hook up all hoses between the implement and tractor in the order you want them. Then, 12 to 18 in. from the outlet, place the "block" between 2 matched male-female hoses. Loop the plastic straps around the hoses and pull the strap through the block with pliers. You can also affix a color-matching fastener to the outlet served by each pair of hoses.
The new fasteners fit any size hose, including hydraulic hoses used on augers. "The arrow marking system works well for keeping augers running in the right direction," notes Herring.
The markers are available in red, blue and green.
