Trying to find a screw cap hose adapter on 06/02/2012 14:23:47 MDT Print View

What I'm looking for comes in the Platypus Drink Tube kit, but I don't need the whole thing. Seen at the end of the tube here: http://m.backcountry.com/platypus-drinking-tube-kit

What I want to do is use this piece in conjunction with an inch of hose and a female quick connect valve in order to clip my filter hose directly into the top of a platy bottle, not bladder. I would switch the regular cap with this for refills. It'd enable me not to have to hold my bottle while filtering and just generally be convenient and cheap. Any ideas?

After you install your quick connect adaptors use a small tie-wrap to secure each one. A slipped connector means a wet pack and much lost water.
