    Spent many years thinking about and looking at irrigation systems for my home garden. So glad I waited! My Dripworks system is easy, simple, flexible, and basically perfect for my backyard gardens.

    Tape Loc x 1/4" Barb

    Great product. For easier use, ensure the feeder line is cold. That way it is easy to puncture a hole into it and insert the Barb. Also, soak the drip tape end in hot water for 30 sec and attach it to the Barb. It will stay on better that way. Do it before you attach the Barb to the feeder line.

    Half inch barb fitting

    Needed some extras to go with my medium drip kit. These were exactly what I thought I was ordering and work just like the ones that came with the kit, so I am pleased :)

    I love Dripworks!

    We have Dripwork's equipment installed in about 1 acre veggie garden and a small orchard. Now that I am 78 year's old and disabled one part time garden worker does it all. I am looking forward to brain surgery in the hope that I will be able to return to a more active life.

    Great Company

    The products are great as well as the service. This is my second year installing the drip irrigation on my berry farm. So far I have almost two miles of drip line installed and it all works great. I've ordered products from DripWorks a number of times only once was there a minor problem with an order and when I used the online chat service the issue was resolved in maybe two minutes. I can strongly recommend DripWorks to others because of the quality and service I've received. The products are a breeze to work with and hold up well. I believe they will last many years without needing to be serviced.

    Drop tape barbs

    Item came as advertised- I have ordered the same type before and I'm glad the style has not changed, very pleased

    Drip tape

    Very easy to assemble and works well. I think I like the medium flow a bit better for my raised beds.

    easy connection

    The barb connection has really made gardening in my raised bed very easy. No more struggling. Thanks for a great product!


This fitting is used to connect 5/8" drip tape to mainline tubing. Simply punch a hole in the mainline tubing, connect the drip tape to the tape end of the fitting and insert the barbed end into the punched hole.

To create a tight seal, be sure tape is warm and pliable before attaching the 5/8" start fittings (LSB/LSBSO) and end fittings (LSGS/LSPLUG). If leakage continues to occur, a 1/4 turn with pliers should suffice.

This fitting allows a flow of 80 GPH at 10 PSI.

The barb on this fitting is slightly larger than the a standard 1/4" barb. Use the Purple Handle Punch or Miracle Punch to make the appropriate sized hole for this fitting. Does not connect to 1/4" tubing.
