Does anyone know what the "connector piece" mentioned in this video at 6min 11s is called: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HIOiyPKUbQ&t=6m10s

And where to buy it?

I could not find it Lowe's, Home Depot, Alkaviva, or the place that sold the water filter unit.

I don't mind buying the entire kit if I have to, but I just can't find where I can buy it from.

Thank you and Happy Holidays :)

Update 1: Sorry, but I should clarify that the Shark Bit quick connect did not work because the threaded end did not reach far enough in to the spout side. enter image description here

I have a video too, but StackExchange won't allow videos.

Update 2: I tried to contact the manufacturer but there was a language barrier so not much information was exchanged. I also tried contacting the person who posted the video, but have not received a response.

    "push to connect" fittings. Home Depot, Lowes, etc definitely have them. – Gunner Dec 26 '19 at 18:38
  • @Gunner thank you for the prompt response and input. Sorry, I was unclear in my question. I've updated it with information on what happened when I tried to Shark Bit quick connect. Do you know of any workarounds for the threaded side? Thank you again for your time and enjoy the rest of 2019 :) – Zhao Li Dec 26 '19 at 19:14
  • Your first coarse of action should be to go to manufacturers web site or try to contact them. – Alaska Man Dec 26 '19 at 20:29
  • @AlaskaMan thanks. We tried that. :) – Zhao Li Dec 26 '19 at 20:51
  • @AL That would have been pertinent info to include in your question. And what happened when you did try that ? Did you try to contact the person who post the video you linked to? – Alaska Man Dec 27 '19 at 20:52

1/4" quick connect fitting available all good plumbing and hardware stores, just make sure you cut the tube square and it is pushed in all the way.

  • thank you for the quick response and input. I tried the normal Shark Bit quick connect adapters but the threaded side was not compatible. I've updated the question with this information; sorry I did not have that information in earlier. Do you know of a way to adjust for this? Thanks again for your time and enjoy the rest of 2019 :) – Zhao Li Dec 26 '19 at 19:13
  • Wow...how were you able to tell it's 1/4"? Is that standard? I always have to bring in the entire piece in to compare sizes. – Zhao Li Dec 26 '19 at 19:23
