Question regarding rotational nozzles-- freely rotate?

Postby sabe » Tue Sep 23, 2008 7:16 am

Am I correct to assume that rotational nozzles imply that I can hold the L shaped nozzle facing the direction I want and screw the nozzle down without rotating the entire nozzle around? The item in question is this:

I'm using a water block that have 2 holes for nozzles located very close together (specifically the Apogee GT), and I'm wondering whether this will enable me to mount the above L-shape nozzles as the holes are too closed together to mount normal L-shape nozzles.

Thanks a million.

Yes, the bottom part with the threads rotate independent of the nozzle. Otherwise you can use a 45 degree adapter.

My order of 10 of these babies just arrived :) Took awhile since I have to ship them to Singapore from the US through a re-direct courier service.

They're perfect, the only complain I have is they're not easy to hand tighten at all unless you have small fingers :) With a cloth I tightened them as much as I can with my fingers, and then used a pair of blunt pliers to tighten them another 1/4 round.

Can I get a confirmation that this is secure enough to prevent leaks? The red rubber seal is pretty smashed in now and can't really be seen.

Yes they are a bit difficult to tighten all the way, if you can easily tighten it then it isn't tight enough. You definitely don't want to torque them too tight or you risk pinching the o-ring, stripping the threading, or damaging the block.

I think it would be great if you could come up with a wrench and spanner set to use with your fittings. On the swivel fittings some sort of spanner that would hold on the knurled outer edge would be fantastic.

A skinny pair of needle nose pliers with grip teeth are perfect for this job!

I have found these perfect for dealing with the nozzles. More so than a typical pair of needle nose pliers. No more screwing around with them.

I think I paid $7 at Canadian Tire for them.

I used the skinny needle nose to tighten my fittings and thats why I figured a fit spanner would work better. Just machine in a few indents for the spanner to lock into and it would be 100% better then using the needle nose setup. If your working in a tight area any slip on the needle nose and you can tear up the knurling on the fitting. Also a nice anodized set of thin line wrenches would be killer to have just for some of the other fittings.
