A machined groove for the O-ring that doesn't break or flare out when tightened makes the new Anver Captured O-Ring Barbed Fitting (www.anver.com) vibration proof, says the company. Engineers there say it provides a leak-proof, tight fitting seal and retains its position. The component is designed to screw into suspensions and provide the fit of a metal-to-metal connection with the static sealing qualities of an O-ring. The grooved design reportedly simplifies installation by eliminating the need for replacement gaskets or washers because the seal is already properly positioned for a tight fit.
