    Zam connectors

    I am looking for the connector that attaches the hose to the vest,
    used in a water timer from Australia?
    Can some one tell me where I can find them?
    Thanks

    Re: Zam connectors

    I was looking at attaching a garden hose connecting system to my TIE helmet and went to look for a tap connection I could play around with.

    Look what I found, I've walked past these MANY times and never took much notice........





    I think they'll do nicely

    Ya know, I live in Australia and our property has an irrigation system, but did I even think of looking at it for the connectors? Man I'm an idiot

    Cheers,

    Re: Zam connectors

    Thanks MonCal

    Well, we took a trip to the local hardware store and found the item, it's a....

    Pope BSP nut & tail, they come in 20 & 25mm, under $3Aus. Since I'm not that far into the build of the vest, I haven't looked into it yet, but if anyone can let me know which dimension is correct, I can buy them and ship them to you guys at cost of item plus postage, packaging, plus Paypal fee's (4% I think) . I won't take a fee, what I pay is what you'll pay. I hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Kraig

    Re: Zam connectors

    Hi Julie,

    We will pick up a set tomorrow - the hose we are using is 25mm or 1" (Moncal sent it to us, so hope you can get the same size).

    Once we get them, we will have to work out the postage cost to the US.

    Cheers

    Re: Zam connectors

    Thanks!!! If my hoses are more than 1" they're not MUCH more. I'm excited now... We were just getting ready to go in search of new connectors for my brand new chest armor, too. Yeah, I think those will do

    Hi Julie,

    Have just got back from the hardware store, and the post office.

    The connectors cost $2AUS, but airmail including packaging & paypal fee to the States is $9.70.

    Total cost to you, and anyone else interested will be $11.70 AUS.

    If interested please PM your address, and we can get it shipped same day.

    Cheers

    Re: Zam connectors

    PM sent, but just so she doesn't have to repeat information, I'd like a set for Zamovar too. If you don't get back to the hardware store anytime soon, I understand. I don't think we're in any hurry!

    BTW, I think I still have a box of the Aussie Connectors laying around my place.

    In case anyone needs a pair.

    You've got it MonCal! I've got at least one extra set for sure! (I might have a second but I can't promise that until I pull out the whole "Zam" box and take everything out... which will just have to wait until after work tomorrow
