I don’t know what these connectors are called but when I connect my compressor to the spray head via the male connector it doesn’t seem like a solid connection and leaks air. Is there something else I should use?
You need both the male and female fittings to be matched. The best bet is to buy them in a set. Male and female set is here
Some stores have a color coded tape on the fittings. Buy a male and female fitting with the same color and they will work together.
