Hose Swivel Connectors & Menders for Flextube PU and Flextube PV

Our leaf vacuum hose website Leafvacuumhose.com now offers swivel couplings or connectors for mulch hose and leaf vacuum hose that can be used to connect two pieces of Flex-Tube PU or Flex-Tube PV Hose and can also be used to repair cracks/splits. Swivel connectors eliminate the twisting and binding that happens when moving long lengths of mulch hose. The Flexaust hose connector attaches to the OUTSIDE of your mulch hose and does NOT obstruct the flow of materials. Flexaust swivel connectors; coupling, male cam, and female cam, are available for both 4” and 5” Flex-Tube PU and PV hose. Hose menders are placed on the inside of the hose and are secured with a bridge clamp*.
