Threading a fire hose is not a difficult task to accomplish when there is no pressure, the operator is not donned in full structure firefighting gear and the threads are still like new. However, it is difficult when these factors are applied. That’s when minutes, when seconds count. A house can be fully involved, completely engulfed by flames, in a matter of minutes. Connecting to a hydrant or connecting two hoses together with less than perfect threads is no place to waste valuable seconds while someone’s property is burning. This is where the threadless fire hose coupling concept comes in.
