Qwickhose: The unique Wing-Lock hose connector that won’t pop off!


The Qwickhose range, sets a completely new standard for hose fittings, connectors, and accessories. Our innovative re-designed universal Wing-Lock connectors offer quick and easy connection with greater hose grip, eliminating any unexpected pop offs and reducing water wastage.


The Wing-Lock system replaces the typical fiddly ‘teeth’ of traditional models for a quick but robust hose connection - simply push your hose all the way over the inner tube, clamp the wings shut and secure with the nut. This method of attachment gives a completely new and unique user experience, making the process smooth, fluid, and effortless. The extra-long connector then acts as a handle while providing increased hose grip for preventing frustrating pop-offs.



Our Wing-Lock connectors fit ½” garden hose and are universally compatible with any existing spray guns, sprinklers, and other accessories that utilise the quick connect system, simply pull the grey collar back while inserting for secure lock on the attachment.


Alongside hose connectors Qwickhose offer an expanding range of high-quality products such as the Starter Set which includes two award winning Wing-Lock connectors, one Original and one No-Flow (prevents water flow when changing attachments), a screw-on Tap Connector, a Nozzle Spray End – with three adjustable patterns, and a space saving Wall Mount to keep your accessories neat and tidy, with capacity to drape your hose, keeping everything off the ground.



Starter Set components are all available individually alongside the other products in the range. These include a Double Male Joiner and Extend & Repair Wing-Lock Connector – both designed to connect 2 lengths of hose together. The newest addition to the Qwickhose range is our brand-new Mini’s spray heads, consisting of 4 quality spray nozzles, all contained in one simple storage solution, for all watering needs on the go. Plus, we have more unique and quality products currently in development that will be following soon.


The Qwickhose range is designed to be stored neatly in the Wall Mount keeping all accessories off the ground and in one place. Our products are made in the UK from UV Stabilised premium-grade plastics to prevent deterioration of quality and colour.
