This female connector is one half of the connection that is needed to make a secure and water-tight connection to the ballast bag, that comes apart quickly for fast service.
Use with 1" or 1-1/8" hose for compatibility with high-flow aerator and reversible pumps and the ballast bag of your choice with the mating male quick connect fitting that threads in the bag (see recommended accessories). This elbow quick release connector has a 1-1/8" hose barb fitting on one side and the Flow-Rite Qwik-LOK female end on the other that will connect directly to the compatible 1" Flow-Rite Quick Release Connect offered for various ballast bag brands. Perfect for integrating ballast bags into an automated ballast system, or for replacing a damaged factory fitting that came in your boat.

Using With 1" Ballast Hose
If you are using this fitting with 1" ballast hose, the end section of the hose must be heated with a heat gun for it to securely fit over this fitting. For more information and guidance on this process, read our article on How-To Fit 1-1/8" Fitting in 1" hose.

I love the connections. The operation is smooth and makes adjustments, connections quick and easy. Price is very reasonable and products are well built.
Had a straight connector which caused my line to kink and pulled the fitting from the sac which leaked water into the boat. Installed this 90-degree elbow and it's working like it's supposed to now.
Do yourself a favor and buy these. I bought the simple screw in elbow ones with the barb and these are way better. These were alot easier to unhook and put the hoses on and what not. Connections are sturdy i like em.
Broke a fitting in my Moomba. This was a direct replacement and arrived quickly. Back on the water in minutes.
