Description

The EZ-ON Hose Press is a portable push lock hose tool that makes assembling -4 to -16 barbed fittings a piece of cake. Simply clamp the fitting into the stationary vise, the hose into the traveling carriage, then turn the lead screw with an impact gun. The EZ-ON Hose Press will push the hose onto the barb in only a few seconds. There is no need to heat the hose with boiling water or heat guns.

The soon to be released Mega Hose Press is a push-on hose machine that will serve the needs of industrial plumbing operations. It will assemble 1/4" to 3" straight and angled fittings. Like the EZ-ON Hose Press, it's a portable, battery powered tool you can take it with you for on-site hose assembly. The Mega Hose Press delivers 1 ton of pressure with 1/4" impact gun.

EZ-ON Hose Press Details

 

The EZ-ON Hose Press push lock hose tool is stored in a custom molded case. All the fitting adapters required for -4 to -16 fittings are stored within the case. The kit must stored as shown for the case to close.

 

The extended jaws are used for -4 to -8 hose.

 

The short jaws are used for -10 to -16 hoses.

 

The chart on the bottom of the case matches the color of the adapters to the size of the fittings. The adapters are also marked with the dash numbers. The pinned adapters are used for angled fittings.

EZ-ON Hose Press Instructions

 

Place the proper adapter in the stationary vise and push them in.

 

For straight fittings, use the round adapters as shown.

 

To remove the adapter, use a pin punch or something similar.

 

Install the fitting as shown. Do not over tighten. Some of the brands will require a looser clamp to line up the hose. Hold the fitting in place until you get the hose started, then tighten the clamp.

 

Clamp the hose in the jaws of the traveling carriage. Leave enough hose exposed so that the hose can be fully installed on the end of the barb without interfering with the clamp.

 

If necessary, lubricate the barb of the fitting with a mild soap solution. Most of the time there is no real need for any hose assembly lube when using the EZ-ON Hose Press.

 

The EZ-ON Hose Press is built with stops as a safety measure. If the carriage hits the stops, retract the hose clamp carriage and reclamp the hose. Do not over tighten the carriage against the stops. In the photo, the clamp jaw has been removed from the carriage to expose the stops.

 

A few fitting manufacturers make their fittings with a tight radius. In this case, remove the plastic adapters and clamp the hose as shown. A little practice and you will get it.

 

When assembling barbed fittings with a tight radius, you can use your free hand to guide the hose onto the barb and to hold it level with the hose if necessary.

 

Install the hose with a impact gun and 17 mm socket.

    We were tired of fighting push lock fittings that would leak. Decided to buy this tool and it’s $250 well spent.

    This is a well built tool that works. A timesaver.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    This tool is AMAZING!!!! We use the push locks on everything here at Nerd Rods from out custom fuel systems, to power steering return lines (not the pressure power steering line obviously) and oil cooling systems on the transmission and engines. Heck we probably use 12-30 ends on each chassis leaving our shop and at 14-20 chassis a year that A LOT of end.

    I did the first car with the push lock ends and hand bruises on the insides of my palms after two days of fighting with them to get them all seated. Got this tool and did a whole car in a matter of hours. It paid for itself on the first car in time alone. Here we are 20-30 chassis projects later and well over 300 ends, probably closer to 400 and we’ve finally worn out the little plastic jaws (just call, they have replacements if you use it that much) killer tool everyone should own, hands down!

    Best $250 I have spent in quite some time. I ran fittings for an entire fuel injection conversion in about 20 minutes! Priceless!

    Wow, just WOW!
    In a world full of disappointments, this bad-arsed tool does satisfy. Built like a tank, will last my lifetime, and makes a painful and difficult chore a breeze.
    Pays for itself in one morning of quick and easy hose assembly. Grips so nicely that it will seat hose already covered in woven fiberglass firesleeve. Too koul.

    Bought this tool a year ago and use it quite often. What a time saver.
    Thumbs up. My boss bought this for the company at PRI and what a joy to use.
