This is a semi-rigid tubing. The easiest way to install this tubing on the end of a beer shank is by using Birdman Brewing part ACCU-SHANK. To install on an MFL threaded keg disconnect, use Birdman Brewing part ACCU-MFL.
To install on barbed fittings, we recommend soaking this semi-rigid tubing in boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to soften prior to pressing firmly on a 3/16" hose barb. (A 1/4" barb can also work by widening the tubing opening a little more.) Alternatively, a heat gun works well to make the tubing soft. We've also found that a small needle nose pliers can be effective at expanding the opening. We recommend securing the tubing with a hose clamp to ensure it is leak proof.
NOTE that the tubing provided by the manufacturer for this size of tubing is white, without the red stripes as shown in the picture.
