      A:  The threaded open end at the base. I use quick connects on all my sprinklers and hoses.

        A:  The hose attaches in the middle by twisting.

          Q:I bought this sprinkler a few weeks ago and it has worked fine. Then it began going continually in a full circle. Upon observation I see that the red pin that hits the stops is missing, couldn't locate it on the ground. Are any of these small replacement parts available?

          A:  There was a orange tab pin on the top of the sprinkler head when I bought it. I didn't know what it was for so I took it off and don't know where it is now. I have a box full of miscellaneous small parts so I'm going to try and fashion a replacement that will prevent the sprayer from going past the adjustable stops on either side. It's very helpful to be able to use those adjustable stops for controlling the spray pattern. Hope this helps.

            A:  Eubie, we don't sell the red pin by itself, but we may be able to send you a replacement sprinkler. Please contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help in any way we can. Thanks!

              A:  Once this piece comes off, you cannot order a replacement, only an entire new unit. As you may have noticed, you can only use the sprinkler in 360 degree mode when the orange tab is lost/broken off.

                A:  When this tab fell off mine during first use, I was amazed to find it in the grass and promptly super-glued it into horizontal position (since I never wanted to use it in 360 degree mode) and it has worked well since then.

                  I have some that are over 6 years old that still work just bought a new one with a gray body
                  It seems to be the same quality I've had no problem with these th circle pattern is easy to adjust the spray head pattern is easy to slide back and forth once you get it loose it works well over all I've had no problems just be careful that you don't bend the spike and break it I've done that on one but that was my fault

                    I purchased two of these. One of them after about a week will not allow me to set the parameters and it’s completely completely goes around in a circle!

                    Sprinkler Heads failed - no good. Waste of money.
                    The sprinkler heads do not rotate after two weeks of use. I went online and the fix was to check the filter, which may impede water flow, and not provide enough water flow to rotate the sprinkler head. The other fix was to check for water pressure to the sprinkler head. There was plenty of water flow to the heads and no clogged filters. It may be faulty engineering or a broken gear. In any case, both of the new sprinkler heads do not rotate and are a waste of money. Will be returning.

                      Don't buy!
                      This sprinkler is a worthless piece of junk. The first time I tried to adjust the spray pattern, the tiny plastic adjusting tab (Tab B in the instructions) fell off. Since it is only about 1/16 of an inch square, it was impossible to find it in my lawn. Don't waste you money on this poor excuse for a sprinkler. Buy a quality metal sprinkler instead.
