Summary

This device couples to a standard plastic garden hose quick-connector. It should work with most brands (I've found that these things are actually pretty universal, US design is the same as in in Europe! Major surprise).

What does it do? It connects. That's all. You'll have to mod it to make something useful out of it.

I'm anxiously awaiting images of people watering their lawn with a Bre or Colbert nozzle.

And if you really want to print something that would totally warrant your ultimaker or makerbot investment, why not create a spray nozzle or sprinkler system that exactly waters the shape of your lawn.

Instructions

There are two versions: one with a cutout for a rubber washer, the other with an integrated (printed) washer.
1 Print.
2 Check fit & with your system.

There is a solidworks file for the specialists.

Thanks, especially for also uploading the solidworks file, I have a heat exchanger with badly corroded threads, now I can print a precise fit coupler and use a filler glue to make it watertight. :)

Awesome, thanks for the solidworks file. I want to make a pond sucker that needs a garden hose clip.

The drawing is Not to size, it measures over 3 feet tall. Why not upload the rite size?

GHT thread for the US, and its territories., is not the same as the rest of the world.

From Wiki "The thread standard for garden hoses in the US and its territories is known as GHT or "garden hose thread" which has an outer diameter of 1 1/16 inches, 1.0625 inches (27.0 mm) and a pitch of 11.5 TPI. Outside the US, the more common BSP standard is used, which is 3/4" and 14 TPI. The G
HT and BSP standards are not compatible."

How exactly does this thing attache to hose without threads inside of it?

I was just trying to make something like this. My plan is to make custom water toys for my daughter.
