I have a duel channel tubing that has been punctured and cannot be sealed.
This is what I was hoping you could help me fix this. I am looking for a
part that is about the size length and diameter of your thumb that would
fit watertight into a 3/8 polyurethane tube. On the other end, the part
should have two nubs offset 90 degrees from the inlet that would allow me
to connect two very skinny tubes. All connections should be made watertight
and withstand some backpressure. I would rather not use metal if possible.
I have seen this similar setup in the vacuum system in one of my
automobiles but I am having trouble identifying the part.
Any ideas please post or better yet send to
Thanks for you time

Actually, it won't be better to send to that account. The idea is that
others may participate.
The type of tubing you are talking about sounds a lot like the tubes that
are used in biology and chemistry research labs.
You should be able to get fittings for this at many auto stores as well as
stores like Lowes and Home Depot.
Doesnt sound very unique to me... this fix for puctured tubing is pretty
You dont say WHY you dont want to use "metal".. perhaps it's because there's
some corrosive or caustic flow?
Otherwise, for gases and most liquids, Brass is preferred., much more durable
than steel, aluminum or most plastics..
Like Jeff said... available at most hardware or auto parts stores. Hardware
would actually give you more choices.
