This 3-Way Manifold is designed to split a single airline from an air compressor into 3 separate airlines. Each inlet connects to 1/4 in. industrial (I/M) couplers while the 3 outlets connect to 1/4 in. industrial (I/M) and automotive (T) plugs. Made from steel and brass for added durability.

This is the Husky 3-Way Air Manifold (model HDA31300—though you won’t find that number on the package—look for 1003 181 433—see Photo 1). It plugs into the quick disconnect already (usually) on your compressor and allows you to plug in 3 hoses at once. The manifold is solidly built (by Campbell Hausfeld for Home Depot). The male connector is industrial type I/M and the female connectors are universal (they accept industrial type I/M or automotive type T connectors).
On most female quick-disconnect connectors I’ve used, you have to retract the collar with one hand while you insert the male portion with the other, then when you let go of the collar, it locks in the fitting. This manifold is particularly nice in that you can plug in a hose with just one hand—simply push it in and it locks. There were no leaks and the manifold worked perfectly (see Photo 2).

Husky/Campbell Hausfeld and The Home Depot have a handy air maniflold
in this unit. Only have one outlet on your home compressor? This manifold
is what you need ! The female couplers are unique as they will accept a variety
of male nipples from Milton to Tru-flate, automotive to industrial ! Allows you to
make one air hose (see pix) into three when you are using more than one air
powered tool on your job. 1/4" NPT fittings are the same as most of todays air
tools !! What a handy and WELL made manifold !!
Provided with a ¼ inch Industrial (I/M) male connector for attaching to one’s air supply and three (3) ¼ inch, female “universal” quick connects for either Industrial (I/M) or Automotive (T) fittings, the machined aluminum manifold block splays out the connectors in the same plane, with 60 degrees of separation. The single plane arrangement should permit neater routing of multiple hoses. Two 3/16 inch holes are provided in the manifold block which could be used to hang the manifold up off the floor. The output connections are of the spring-loaded type to permit insertion of the mating connector with one hand. I only had industrial type fittings available so could not evaluate the compatibility with automotive type connections. When tested to 150 psi, there was no leakage from the manifold or the attached fittings. This appears to be a solidly made accessory which will permit connecting up to three air tools to the same supply which will be useful for use with tools such as nailers, which can function when supplied though ¼ inch lines.

This product is packaged on a flat cardboard hanger. The product is encapsulated with clear plastic. It is easy to open with scissors or utility knife.
The manifold assembly is made from various metals. The distribution block is made from aluminum or other non-ferrous metal. The distribution block has 2 holes drilled through. There is no mention of these hole or their use on the rear of the package. I may use them to mount to my compressor frame. The quick connect couplers are made from steel and the grip has ample checkered knurl finish for extra grip. The inner slip ring is made of brass. This economical item is good for light to medium use in a home remodel project or in the work-shop.
