My garden hose rack-mount, my shop-vac, etc.. all have a plastic thread to attach a garden hose.
I try hard to hit the thread just right, but sometimes I miss.
This leads me to wonder if I'm not unduly shortening the life of all these devices by not strengthening their plastic tip.
Does there exist a minuscule extension that I would thread permanently on each such plastic tip to turn it into a brass tip one? What name should I use to ask for this gadget at the hardware store?
