Nylon washer used with 1/4 inch flare fittings. Use the washer anywhere you have metal to metal contact on flare fittings to prevent leaks. This can be on certain types of regulator connections and with stainless steel quick disconnects (like the Torpedo Quick Disconnects)

This gasket is not necessary when connecting female flare fittings to the plastic MFL quick disconnects because they have a plastic washer built in.

BEST ANSWER: Only if you are connecting metal to metal - such as a male flare on a manifold or regulator. If you are using it to connect to a beer or gas ball lock quick disconnect, then those disconnects have a bit of plastic built in, and you don't need to use the nylon flare washer.

You need a dozen of these!
This lowly nylon washer is all that stands between you, and losing your whole tank of precious CO2.

Flare fittings aren't all equal - some are machined better than others (MoreBeer's are pretty good). A tiny bit out of tolerance, and your gas connections will leak.

Remember CO2 leaks only happen when you've invited all your friends over to taste your latest tasty brew. Be prepared.

Unfortunately, these washers are easy to lose - I know!. So buy a dozen, and keep 'em handy - like in your toolbox - because you WILL need them someday.

Buy some extras to have on hand
I find these to be common on several brewing products by different manufactures. When you lose the one you have whatever the product is will either leak gas or fluid. At this price make sure you have some extra on hand.

worked for me
I thought the metal on metal on the flare fittings would work but turned out I needed some help, It looks like these guys did the trick.
