 When your hose needs to have 2 angles installed, you will need to know the twist on the fittings. To do this, start with one angle in your hand pointing straight down (6 o’clock position). Then relative to a clock, figure out what “time” the other points.

Hose Measuring: 

-    We highly recommend when measuring for the hose length that you measure from sealing surface to sealing surface (flare to flare).
-    We do understand that can be difficult at times, so measuring from the end of the B-nut to the end of the other B-nut (tip to tip) is necessary.
