independently by an independent Laboratory and shows conclusive
proof that Twistloc fittings outperform our competitors.

To Lock The Pipe Connection
Lock Pipe Connection
Ensure that the tubing is pushed into the fitting fully past both the collets [gripper] and the 'O' ring and is engaged properly in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
Twist Screw Cap Twist the screw cap until coloured line is no longer visible. This confirms a proper, secure fit. This locks the pipe into position and increases pressure on the 'O' ring seal around the pipe for greater security.

Ensure no scratches, gouges or any form of damage on the circumference of the tubing within one [1] inch [24.4mm] of the cut end. Damage in this area may cause leakage problem.

Check Twistloc® fittings for any signs of damage or foreign objects.

When Twistloc® fittings have to be disassembled and then reused, ensure that the tubing that was removed from the joint has no damage on the circumference within one [1] inch [25.4mm] of the end. Inspect the tube and fitting for any signs of damage and ensure they are free of foreign materials.

Twistloc® fittings can then be reassembled.

Ensure Twistloc® fittings and pipes are kept clean at all times by keeping them in the bags and boxes provided. Do not empty Twistloc Products onto the floor area.


To Seperate The Pipe Connection

Seperate Pipe Check if the pressure inside the system is released.

Unlock fitting by twisting until coloured line is visible and clicking sound is heard.

Press collets squarely against the face of the fitting. With collets depressed, pull tubing to remove from fitting. Fitting may be reused.

Stop End

If necessary, the Twistloc® Stop End not only provides the permanent leak-prevention sealing effects but also enables immediate removal and system extension for re-work. In particular, this is a Push-in design for easy use. The Stop End is also useful in system pressure testing prior to connection works.

Stop End

To assemble fully push in the pipe and pull on pipe to ensure security.
To remove simply push the collet into the body and pull to release the pipe.
