    How do you attach the dust plugs on the tractor side?

    I got a couple of sets of dust plugs for my 1025r and FEL and Snow Plow. I can figure out how to secure the plugs covers on the accessory side of things, but how have people attached them on the tractor side?

    If you got the normal dust caps the loop goes around the pipe prior to putting on connector.

    I don't take quick couple off, I zip tie the ring to pipe.

    Right or wrong...

    As mentioned above, most use zip ties to hold the rings to the pipe and hoses.

    Okay, I was thinking I was missing something with the ring that it was suppose to fit somehow between the floorboard and connector. Tie wrapping them in place will work.

    For a bit easier time figuring out connections, if you have all the same color caps, you could also remove the large ring that goes over the line and use colored zip ties in the corresponding color to the hoses, run through where the old ring did.

    I just put these on mine. A little help from a straight-blade screwdriver to wiggle them on. It was about 30° in the barn that day and they went on well even being cold and stiff. Didn't have to disconnect the coupler from the line either. I like them a lot better than what came with the tractor.
