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!

Since the cost of the tool to remove the piece would possibly cost as much as a new hose, see if you could borrow a pipe reamer

You should try a pair of needle nosed pliers on it

  • Yes, I tried needle nose pliers, but could not get a grip on it – Jagerbacon Jul 23 '17 at 21:26
  • You may just have to get a little rough with it with a flat head screw driver and pliers, if its brass it will bend. – David Moritz Jul 23 '17 at 21:29
  • There is always a replacement hose end, cut off the broken end push the new end in and add the clamp. I use these all the time as horses and tractors are hard on hoses and it is cheaper to repair than replace – Ed Beal Jul 23 '17 at 22:39
  • Backwards needle nose, aka caliper pliers. – Mazura Apr 10 at 19:29
