So, yeah, it's nearly impossible to find a fitting, unless you go to the site, pay $8 US plus $7 shipping... so with the $9 Canadian, you're up to the Lemonbest price anyhow. BOoo... I may at this price though keep it, in case I break my other bottle, etc.

If only I could find this...

Through google images, but when I click visit site, it goes to just general fittings

Can try using pipe dope to seal the threads. Looks like the angle of the threads are different (55 vs 60) so there wont be a perfect seal.

McMasterCarr has the adapter - 4936K119

What about retapping at 3/8"? I am just throwing that out there, but since it's brass is that possible or would the threads just basically crumble? Oh well, it was a pipe dream at $9, guess someone at the Amazon warehouse is laughing ("Jim, remember all those GOOFIE threaded cannons we got, and thought we were stuck with...")

if you take apart the cannon and remove all the plastic pieces, you can probably thread a brass 1/4" NPT - quick connect adaptor into the threads then solder it on for a tight seal?


the other option would be to buy the 1/4" qc to BSP adaptor off of aliexpress for $8ish then wait all summer for it to arrive.

Can try tapping with 3/8" if there is enough meat.

Perhaps an update on the first post to help warning other potential deal seekers?

I will say one thing, if there is a way to find this adapter, do so... The MJJC one is miles beyond the Lemonbest one... unless I got a dud. I got an MJJC one with QC for $31 before it went out of stock, and just tried it, and the foam that goes on the car is so much thicker. The Lemonbest one is like foamy water. This one, is like a blanket of foam and it literally slowly slides off the car, bringing dirt etc with it

No love for Karcher owners from MJJC?
I had to order a $15 adapter on Ebay, from overseas for my Karacher. Then another adapter from princess auto.

The joys...

because...karcher... the adapter needed another adapter. a straight adapter didnt exist, not unless you modified the foam canon which was a different adapter again

Instead of using teflon or pipe dope ... why not try JB weld. I would think that should work.

Pipe dope and teflon tape are primarily for lubrication purposes. They're not intended to really seal anything.

NPT (National Pipe Taper) is a tapered thread which is sealed via the taper. Two pieces are essentially friction fit together to form a seal. All pipe dope or teflon tape are really doing is allowing you to tighten the pieces further due to the reduced friction.

You could probably just force the 1/4" BSP connection into a 1/4" NPT adapter of some sort with some JB weld/epoxy and that will work as long as you plan on never removing that connection.
