Air Compressor Hose Repair

No more leaky air lines.  ◆◇◇◇ Easy


Introduction

Torn ShifterWhen I was working at night, incandescent light got too close to the air hose and it burned a hole through it.  Not knowing that it could be repaird properly, I just decided to run some electrical tape around it but when the air line is bent certain way, it is leaked the air.  So I was considering buying entire air line but found a kit that let you fix the leaky air hose.  In this wirte up I will show you how it is done.

 

Symptom It Fixed

Leaking air hose.

 

Tools & Parts Needed

Flat Head Screw Driver

Kobalt 3/8" Hose Repair Kit (~$5 from Lowes)

Knife

 

Job Hours

10 minutes

 

 

Procedure


 

This is what the kit looks like. The kit contains 3 clamps and one adapater to connect two bare ends of a 3/8" hose and another to terminate one bare end with the threaded male end.

 

 

 

1. First, cut portion of the air line where the leak is.  Try to cut clean, perpendicular to the length of the air hose.

 

 

 

 

2. Place the hose clamp on the both end of the cut.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Place the adapter into both end of the cut.

 

 

 

 

 

4. Clamp the connection as shown using the flat head screw driver.  Connect the hose to the compresor and check for leak.  If there is leak between the connection, tighten the screws more.  You are done!
