    Hey Handz, I bought this foam cannon from CG, it's the one that works with a regular hose instead of a pressure washer.

    WTF is this thing sticking out of the bottom of the handle where you connect the hose for? The instructions don't say what it's for, and it looks pretty obvious that it unscrews out of there so you can screw the hose into the handle, but what's this for? I can't seem to get it out, either.

    i also bought that badass little blower, the black $70 one, that's going to be sweet

    Maybe it's an adapter for a weird size hose? Pressure washer attachment maybe? :eek:

    I agree it looks like a pressure washer attachment

    Isn't it just a quick release coupler?

    Like you know how air hoses connect? You can get parts for garden hoses. You might need to go buy the female end.

    I was lucky to win a nice foam gun/wand last year at the one car show I went too and love it.

    Thats what it looks like to me especially since there is one between the nozzle and the jug.

    Yeah, I've noticed lately that lots of garden hose stuff comes with them now. Way nicer than fighting with the hose.

    You'd think the female end would be included though,

    Standard quick connects will still have a 3/4" hose thread. That's way too small. We sold those exact disconnects and they didn't make anything that small. Maybe a special order part?

    I am not a "moderator" of this section...... Maybe the detailing moderator can answer this.

    ....But I will answer anyways.

    Thats a quick release coupling for your garden hose. It works with a few hoses. I replaced mine with a brass quick release from lowes.

    I don't believe there is a moderator to this section, don't know what happened to that guy... SRT or something or or other.

    I think he paged you because you rep CG.

    There is actually a CG forum where specific CG questions can be answered. CG has techs and customer service reps that answer product related forums.

    Thanks, I can take that out though and just screw this thing directly to the hose, right?

    Yes it's just a regular hose nozzle with quick connects attached. They screw in/out like the hose does.

    Correct. You can use the gun trigger to rinse off your car or even water the lawn.

    I love my foam sprayer but as soon as I bought the normal one they came out with the foam cannon for power washers and that is just awesome.
