1/4" push to connect fittings
brass ones round green plastic 7.97mm 1.94 mm thick
silver ones with oblong yellow plastic 9.54mm 1.94 mm thick
the fist number are the shat size measured across the fitting, the thickness whs done with feeler gauges that han imperial and mm

can you please make one of these for 1/4" push to connect fittings?

I would gladly make one. but I do live in a metric world here is there any chance you could send me the details in mm.

Thanks, used the 15mm Ender 3 extruder.

could you do the opposite too?
I dont get the ptfe tube out anymore!!

Printed several of these. The one on the extruder side went on fine, but the one on the hot end broke during installation. I haven't tried reprinted again, but the size felt somewhat small and the material too thin for the hot end piece.

Also, the ones that came with my Ender 3 work fine, but I wanted to print my own to match the other color pieces on my printer.

Just bought a CR10s two weeks ago, and did NOT get extra fittings, so this was a big help. Thank you for a great, simple file.

With my ender I got three of those clips ready to use. Good catch though.

Yup I believe the new ones now have these in the box.

I'm not sure If I should be flattered or upset.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery; be flattered IMO

I understand that sentiment. Especially because there is no info about the origin of these clamps.

For my Brand New Ender 3 Pro i printed 1x 15mm for Extruder and 1x 10mm for Hotend!

Perfect fit!
1,5mm on extruder and 2mm on hotend!

Ender 3 new revision October 2018 - used both clips 1.5 mm for extruder and hotend. https://www.thingiverse.com/make:593370

Ender 3 pressure fitting fix

I used both clips for my ender 3. Thank you.

1.5mm was perfect for Ender 3 pro. My hot end was fine but my extruder end was moving, I used both clips anyway to be safe. Thank you!

Sainsmart Dec 2018. The hot end version doesn't fit. used 1.5mm and had to scale the x and y axis by 20%. Otherwise the design was great. Thank you!

Nice little mod thanks

Ender 3 Pro (Nov 2018) - The 1.5mm version was perfect. Thanks!

I printed two of the 1.5mm version, it works perfectly!

This is also working for a TEVO Tarantula! Thank you for adding it to Thingiverse! It's working great so far ;)

I don't seem to need these yet, but I'm gonna print just in case. Cheers!

Thank you, perfect version 1.5 and 2mm for Ender 3.

Thanks for the great work. Using Hatchbox Orange PLA, I had to file the ends of the clips so they wouldn't split when I pushed them on. Working very well: so far so good. I put them on shortly after ordering parts to replace the stock fittings, but (1 spool later) haven't seen any troubles.

Fits perfectly, thanks!

The file "1_pressure_fitting_clips_cura.gcode" was the first file I've been printing on my brand new and just assembled Ender 3. The result was perfect! :)
The thickest of the three spacers had the right size for the hotend, the medium one is doing it's job at the extruder. Thanks very much for this neat gimmick!

That's a good comment, because I didn't know which I need to print

20 MM hotend for the Ender 3 Pro fitting, fits very well. Thanks!

Awesome, simple, perfect! Thank you :)

simple and useful THX very much
20MM for me

awesome fix, thank you VERY much!!!

Works great! The "_15mm" versions of both pieces fit my recently purchased Ender 3 perfectly. I used PLA.
