18mm Tap to Hose Connector Set
Experience a watertight connection that won't burst
Specially designed for use with Hoselink’s new 18mm hose fitting range.
18mm diameter hoses are typically used in rural and commercial applications and provide a higher water flow rate than standard 12mm hoses and fittings.
Never get frustrated with your hose leaking or bursting off your tap again!
Hoselink’s 18mm Tap to Hose Set securely connects your tap to your hose in a watertight seal that won’t burst apart.
The 18mm Tap to Hose Set is made up of two individual Hoselink parts:
- 18mm Tap Connector
- 18mm Hose Connector
Thanks to the ergonomically designed bayonet style connection you simply line up the Hose Connector to the Tap Connector and ‘point and twist’ to join them together. It is an easy to use connection for any age, including for those with arthritis.
Purchase Hoselink hose fittings and join thousands of Australians enjoying a better watering experience. Our 18mm hose fittings are covered by a 2 year Warranty and if you aren’t satisfied with your purchase within 30 days we’ll happily give you your money back.

Q. Can I use 18mm hose fittings with my regular green and yellow 12mm Hoselink hose fittings?
A. The O'Ring to O'Ring faces are not compatible between the 12mm and 18mm range. However you can make a connection between the 2 systems by coupling an 18mm Accessory Connector into a 12mm Tap Connector (or vice versa).
Q. Can I fit 18mm hose fittings to a standard garden hose?
A. 18mm hose fittings have been designed specifically for use with 18mm internal diameter garden hoses and cannot be used with regular 12mm garden hoses.
Q. Why would I use 18mm hoses and fittings?
A. Larger internal 18mm diameter hoses and fittings are typically used in low water pressure situations, or where a high volume of water is required. They are often used in commercial situations such as at sporting fields, golf courses, nurseries, farms and parks. Many people in rural situations use these hoses where water pressure is very low, such as supply from a dam or tank. Anyone can choose to use 18mm hoses and fittings but they're typically used as a solution to low water pressure.
Q. What are the locking tabs for?
A. Our 18mm hose fittings have been designed with locking tabs to ensure they never, ever twist apart. We DO NOT recommend you insert these to begin with as once installed, they cannot be removed (and may get in the way of easy use). They may be useful in situations where the weight and particular use pulls the fittings apart, such as at a hose join. In this instance, you can insert a locking tab (on one side only is necessary) to ensure the fittings won't twist apart.
Q. Why aren't the 18mm fittings green and yellow?
A. We wanted to make it easy for customers who use both 12mm and 18mm hose fittings to identify which is which.

I use the connectors to attach fire fighting nozzles to my 18 mm hoses as well as to attach the hoses to taps. I use the joiners to lengthen 18 mm hoses for firefighting too. Not much fun to have a click joiner fair if you are putting out a spot fire or controlling a rubbish burn-off. I’m not suggesting anyone should use such a system to fight a full-on bush or grass fire. Best to leave that to trained and equipped professionals and leave.
As much as I’d like to say ‘great', because I like all of your quality products, I don’t rate this purchase very highly because all I really wanted was the hose connector, ie. by itself without the tap connector. I couldn’t do this as I couldn’t find this option anywhere in the on-line catalogue. I wanted to buy a couple of straight-out hose connectors (18mm) as I already had the tap connector from a previous purchase order. Not only that, I ordered a separate kit - the 18-12mm converter kit and all I received was another tap connector. (I’ve replied to this as an issue in a separate email.)
It was perfect.
Hoselink products have been a great find for us. We have really strong water pressure and we found traditional hose connectors were dangerous for us with our pressure, as once one flew off and nearly hurt my partner. I had remembered the Hoselink advertisements with the two cars pulling the hose and knew they would be the products for us. All our hose fittings are Hoselink and we happily recommend them.
As usual the priduct was everything I expected.Have numerous hoselink in 12mm and I knew 18mm was going to meet my expectations also bought oscillating sprinkler and was amazed at the quality of it have seen same type of sorinkler for arond 16 dollars but was more than happy with my choice.
Great products.i have 5 of them
I allways know how good they are i purchased them for our bowling club at shepparton golf and i will be getting more very soon I have myself bought fittings for the past few years for myself it is a credit how well they are made
Its a wonderful product. The only connector that doesn’t leak!
No more disconnected hoses from now on I will only buy hoselink Their products live up to the advertising claims. Top product easy to fit and always attached!
Great product - I bought these to use in conjunction with a float valve. I was previoulsy having problems where the hoses kept popping off when the tank was full. These have fixed the problem and no more wasted water
