I had a leak where my two way connector was attached to my garden hose so I tightened it up. When I turned the water on, the male end of the two way broke off inside the female end of the garden hose. I was wondering how I would go about getting it out, as I do not want to replace the hose.
TRY a POTATO ! just cut a piece of potato and "screw" the potato into the female end-- it just might grab enough for you to unscrew the broke male threads -- it is safe on your hands and cheap to try - won't damage anything-- I have used this to get out broken light bulb parts in a socket too! GRANDPA taught me this decades ago!
I got out my socket set and found one size that fit very snuggly in the sheared male end of the hose. For me, it was 17 mm. Banged it in there a little bit to make sure it was really snug and then set my socket wrench to loosen and it actually worked! I know the post is old, but I figure it might help somebody out in the future.
