Assemble Hoses To Prevent Incorrect Connection

There are several ways to assembly your hose to prevent them from being hooked-up incorrectly. One way is to color code the connections. You can assemble a colored CNC Rotator for a double connection (see Users Manual). Simply match the colored mates for easy identification. The other method is to alter the orientation of quick-couplers (see Users Manual).
