Hydraulic Hose Repair Couplers*U.S. Patent 9,482,375
If you’re looking to repair a section of damaged hydraulic hose and want to avoid replacing the entire line, this may be the solution for you. Cabriolet Hydraulics patented Hose Couplers* are designed to repair or reconnect common hydraulic hoses in modern convertible top hydraulic systems. In many cases, leaking convertible top hydraulic hoses can be easily and permanently repaired on the car with basic hand tools. Hoses are crimped internally and externally the same way as they are with the factory connectors. Most hydraulic systems with these small bore (internal) diameter lines operate at a peak pressure of 200 bar or 2900 psi. Cabriolet Hydraulics Hose Couplers* are pressure tested to 10,000 psi without failure. Our hose repair couplers fit many factory (OEM) hydraulic hoses installed in modern convertible, vario-roof, and retractable hardtops made by:
Audi, Bentley, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mini Cooper, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Pontiac, Rolls Royce, Saab, Volkswagen, Volvo, and others. See Hose Coupler Installation Requirements below to determine if our repair coupler will fit your specific application.
If the Hose Coupler* is not the solution for your hose problem we can supply high pressure replacement hoses for your application. See our Convertible Top Hydraulic Hoses page.
