The largest advantage of the notched design is that the coupling can be removed from a damaged
hose by cutting away the ferrule, without necessarily damaging the fitting. After inspection of the fitting to
determine its suitability for reuse, it can be reinstalled into another hose by using a new ferrule.
The notched system allows you to better manage your inventories. You can stock one stem and
two ferrules, and cover the same hose range with less inventory. You must purchase a fitting and the matching
ferrule to create an assembly.
For hose outside diameters of 2-4/64" and below, the
couplings are crimp only.
For hose outside diameters of 2-5/64" and above, the couplings
can be crimped or swaged.
Only use the NOS shank with the NOS ferrules.
Due to differences in dimensions and tolerances for safety reasons,
do not use other manufacturer's stems or ferrules with Dixon Holedall products.
