What is the OD of this barb 1/2" or 5/8"? Does 1/2" silicone tubing fit loose or tight on it? I want a "snug" fit and use a hose clamp, not a tight fit and struggle to remove the hose from the barb. Trying to determine if I need 3/8" or 1/2" barbs.
Ryan Gibson on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: OD is a little larger than 9/16". The fit is snug on H985, our 1/2" silicone tubing.

High quality fitting
This is a high quality fitting that installed with ease. It came with teflon tape on it, I gave it a little turn with a wrench and it's perfect.
