Leader 5/16 Tees have a special, ultra aggressive barb design so that the 5/16 lateral line plastic tubing of a maple sap tubing system locks on to eliminate leaks. The fitting is molded to be strong, and durable for years of permanent installation in the maple sugar woods. The inside diameter of the Leader 5/16 plastic tees are the largest in the maple sugaring industry to reduce restrictions and the chance of plugging fittings with ice, or bacteria. To ease installation of these tees we recommend that a tubing tool is used.
