Default Where I can find splice tube to connect rubber hose?

Hello all,

Is there a splice tube that can be used to connect two rubber hose together?

For example, if you cut the power steering return rubber hose in half, then connect them together. I figure out that a small plastic tube inserted in both end of the hose and tighten with clamps.

Does any store sell the stuff like that? what name for it?

Thank you

Of course there is! Not sure what it's called but you'll find it at a hardware store or an auto parts store. Tell the employee what you want and hopefully they have it

Go to your local hardware store and ask for a brass barbed connecter.

The real question is why did you cut your power steering return hose in half?

No. I will not do so.

I have an old issue of very slow leak of PS from the end of return hose.
After I got some advise from the experts here, I replace the original clamp with a different one. After long period of time, the slow leak stops. The original slow leak is very minimal, maybe one or two drops per week where I can see some oils on the outside of the rubber hose.

Today, I got a new issue, please see my other post
See Power Steering Oil on top the cap

I am not sure which really causes the problem. So just want to know the worse case what I should do. The nipple of the return hose is famous for its fragile, so I have do this disconnection as my last choice.
