1st post so be kind. In B&Q North Shields this morning, in the gardening clearance section. Picked one of these up marked @ £3 on shelf, cheaper than B&Q equivalent so took it to checkout, went through at £1.00!
Obviously, unsure how widespread availability is, but if marked at £3 doubt stock flying out the doors! They had a few, maybe 12 (didn't remember as £3 wasn't that special!) in North Shields. Quick look online cheapest £5.99+P&P. Link to gardena site below, couldn't find on diy.com.
"The high-quality premium hose connector featuring a modern and sophisticated design.
Fast convenient connection and change of accessories at the outlet end of the hose.
Connect accessory and water flows, disconnect and water stops automatically - this saves a walk to the tap to when changing the accessory.
Grooved soft plastic grip for comfortable handling.
A rubber ring provides additional protection to the product.
A very tight fit thanks to a stable clamping nut of high-quality metal.
