Perma-Loc 5/8" Tape Barbed Takeoff Valve. Use to connect 5/8" drip tape to any 1/2", 3/4" or 1" mainline poly tubing. The tape reducer allows you to feed a line of drip tape from poly tube mainline.
After laying out your mainline tubing along the head of the area you want to water, use the punch tool to make a hole in the location where you want each line of drip tape. Insert the barbed end of the reducer into the poly tube and attach the tape to the large end of the reducer per the instructions below.

About Drip Depot Perma-Loc Drip Irrigation Fittings:
Perma-Loc fittings are heavy duty reusable connectors, adapters and fittings for all your connection needs. They are very easy to use and require no special tools. Perma-Loc fittings are available for both Tubing and Tape. The Tubing connectors can be used on blank tubing as well as drip line.
- To use: Simply push tubing or tape over barbed end, then hand-tighten locking nut over tubing or tape for a permanent secure fit.
- To Remove: Just loosen locking nut, pull tube off and re-use as needed.
Perma-Loc fittings look similar to traditional flange and locking nut plumbing connections; however, in most cases, they work differently. Unlike a typical locking nut, which comes off the fitting and slides over the tubing, a Perma-Loc locking nut is usually not removed from the fitting. The exception to this rule are some of the larger 3/4" and above tubing fittings. Select a video from above to see how the Perma-Loc drip irrigation tubing and tape fittings work.
Perma-Loc tape fittings are compatible with Toro Aqua-Traxx Tape, John Deere T-Tape and Chapin Tape.
