Loc-Line® Modular Hose

loc-line shape

1/4" System 1/2" System  -  3/4" System  -   Vacuum Hose


The tapered skirt design of Loc-Lines allows full articulation of the ball without cutting off any of the flow as do round skirt designs.


  • Loc-Line's unique ball and socket design is fully hand adjustable in both position and length.

  • Bending doesn't decrease the inside diameter and it won't kink or fatigue like copper tubing.

  • Unlike metal hoses, Loc-Line won't damage machine tool cutters if contact occurs.

  • Loc-Line is electrically non-conductive. It is ideal for use as an EDM flushing hose.

  • Loc-Line has no internal positioning rod that can break or restrict fluid flow.

  • Repeated positioning is easy and it will stay in position with-out any springback. Creep due to machine vibration is eliminated .

  • All Loc-Line products are made in the U. S. A.
