replacing a nut with a quick-connect end?

Posted by nostalgicfarm (My Page) on

I ordered some replacement parts for my sink, and they changed a lot of things. My sink has the faucet spigot and 2 handles. They included a new spout hose because the side changed. The old hose connected to the (spigot) T with a nut. The new hose has a quick-connect end. I have been trying to connect the 2 forever now, and am wondering....Does a quick connect female end need a quick connect male end? Or should I be able to get this quick connect end over the screw end that a nut use to cover?
Thanks!

Yes. If you don't have the other part, just unscrew the one you have and connect the old fashioned way.

disregard

Disregard. I should have read more carefully (I was thinking about the hose bib outside).

....but you do need the other half of the quick-connect. Those quick connects usually connect underneath for pull-out type faucets.

homebound, thanks for the quick answer. I have the old spout tee to connect to. (I can't rehook my old hoses, as the other end doesn't fit new replacement piece) The new Replacement hose they sent has a quick connect instead of nut end...

So you are saying I need to head to Lowes with my old and new hoses to get the new faucet handle end and the old nut end, Right?
Thanks!

Unless you can unscrew the old fitting from the old hose and then use it.

Thanks! Looks like a trip to HD/Lowes! Hopefully they will have the right part/sizes :)
