If you've got a Milwaukee grease gun do a little homework before you order a LockNLube. I just tried to swap mine from my old gun the the Milwaukee, so I still have options, sort of.
****ATTENTION MILWAUKEE GREASE GUN USERS****
The standard LockNLube® Grease Coupler has a 1/8" NPT hose connection. This will be
compatible with all US grease guns EXCEPT SOME of the 18 volt Milwaukees.
It appears that Milwaukee has imported a batch of 18 volt guns that have 10x1 Metric thread on
the coupler end of the hose. There is no way to tell what the thread is without taking off the
coupler and then test fitting a known 1/8" NPT onto the hose end to see if it works. If the known
1/8" NPT does not thread on, that likely indicates that the thread is the 10x1 Metric.
There are indications that the most recent Milwaukees are now coming through with 1/8" NPT
and not the 10x1 Metric.
If a customer of yours uses a Milwaukee Grease Gun and would like to purchase a LockNLube®
Grease Coupler, please encourage the customer to take the following steps:
1. Determine the thread type on their grease gun - their grease gun may have standard 1/8" NPT,
in which case they can purchase a standard LockNLube® Grease Coupler.
2. If their Milwaukee Grease Gun has metric thread, they have two options:
(a) Replace the original hose with a new Milwaukee hose Part # Milwaukee 49-16-
2647. The new replacement hoses are 1/8"NPT. The thread size is printed right on the front of
the package. A 1/8" NPT hose will work with a standard LockNLube® Grease Coupler.
(b) Contact LockNLube by calling 603-795-2298. We now carry couplers with Metric
thread, and will be more than happy to help work through this problem with you and/or your
If you would like to purchase some Metric thread LockNLube® Grease Couplers, please call
603-795-2298. These couplers are available at the same cost as a standard LockNLube® Grease
