NorthStar Swivel Pressure Washer Coupler - 3/8in. Fitting, 5000 PSI
High Pressure Swivel
This made installation into my vintage pressure washer very simple. I thought it might leak, but it is holding strong. I would order again when necessary

Swivel works great. I've purchased this model before and they last many hours and the price is great.

I did the grease trick and it works. I used it to connect my pressure washer hose to my hose reel.

I think I can make it work
I believe that if I keep this oiled it will work very well.
The problem with some pressure washer fittings is that you should frequently use a bit of WD 40 or lithium grease on them. I oil all the fittings on mine before and after I use them because I have always had a problem with them freezing up on me. Does not matter what brand they are or what they are made of.
I do not use my pressure washer frequently. It may sit for almost a month before I use it again. In that time water will cause things to either rust or freeze up. That's why I always make sure to drain out my hoses and empty my wands after each use. I had to lose two good wands before I realized I neede to perform maintenance each time.

WORKS WELL IF YOU GREASE IT..
This did'nt work well untill it aded lithium grease to it.
with grease I would give it A 5 Without A -1.
Wow it sure does work well now.
For best results use asmoil metal protector.
It's the slickest lithium type grease on the planet.

This item would not rotate that well. It proved to be rather useless. Basicly a large paper weight. I should have returned it.

Swivels under pressure
The good news is that the swivel isn't leaking yet but it's still pretty new - the bad news is that despite the claim that it swivels under pressure - it only does it half the time at best... prepare for wound up pressure hoses if you are going to be using this swivel.
