Looking for the name of the part for an air compressor...

I am looking for the name of the part that goes from the garage spigot (faucet) to the air compressor.

Attached is a pic of my air compressor hose.

For the last few years I have created my own hose attachment to winterize, but it is too unreliable and leaks, so now I need to purchase something that will go into my spigot (attached image).

Does anyone know where I can purchase this item in Canada as well. Thank you

Easy enough to find at Homer's or similar home center, David. Female garden hose thread on one end, IP thread on the other. Pretty common fitting. You may need a bushing or two to reduce the size down to your air hose fitting. Number of ways to approach it.

You do know you gotta be careful connecting that much pressure to your home's water system, yes?

My opinion; worth price charged.

Yes I know, nothing more that 75 psi I believe.

75 psi is probably very much on the max side

I, too, need to winterize some lines. Except I've got a female connection point. I don't think I've ever needed to run the pressure over 40-50 psi to blow out lines. Here's my adapter. I make sure to store it 5" from where it's needed so I don't ever lose it

Use the link CX provided, or just run to any real hardware store and they'll have you set in a couple minutes.
