    Anyone know where to get one of these?

    Almost done with my Trafalgar washer bottle - finally found a source for a screw-on top that fit. Last mission is to try to find the attachment that installs in the top for the water hose (see picture).

    Anyone know of a source?

    Thanks!

    If it's threaded it looks like a standard barbed brass fitting. Maybe McMaster Carr?

    Do an eBay search for "10-32 barb fitting". Also search google images for same thing.

    For those interested in where I found the screw on top to fit my Trafalger washer bottle check out www.michaels.com and search for item #D061830S.
    Certainly not an exact match to the original but fits tightly, looks great and when painted black is a reasonable substitute. I have about 20 different similar items that I ordered from 20 different companies in my quest to find the one screw on top that fit. Fortunately my wife is understanding about this and is finding different uses for all those other containers!
