The grip sleeve end is an economical way to end a line of drip tape. To use: slip the tape through the narrow side, fold over as many times as possible (a minimum of four folds for the 15 mil, six folds for the 8 mil) and pull back on the feeder end to wedge tight.
Note: Some dripping will occur from the grip sleeve end. Because of this, it is recommended to keep the end of each line within the planting zone. If a watertight seal is desired, use a Tape x Male End Cap fitting () instead.

- The drip tape and all the accessories that I got are state of the art irrigation. Delivering water slowly and efficiently not only enables you to harvest 800 tomatoes from nine plants (secret - manual pollination) but virtually eliminates weeding as top soil remains dry and unreceptive to contaminants. I've been sourcing from DripWorks for years and will continue to do so.

- These are the best way to seal the ends of Drip tape. Push about 3 folds into the slot.

- I setup my garden with this stuff this year, I'm loving the benefits of drip irrigation!

- Unlike 1/2 tube there is no good way to make an "end" for drip tape using PVC pipe, etc. These things are what you want to use for tape.
