    The part connecting my hose lock seems to be busted.
    See image below.

    It's the part on the right.
    The water comes out in splurges. (I'm assuming this is the cause of the problem!)
    This pipe is about 1m long and connects to the bigger hosepipe on a reel.

    Does this part replace the part I need:

    While writing this post... I think I found out what it's called 'hose end connector'.
    In my pic, I think I'm missing one part that screws on.

    Or, am I better off ordering online?

    Thanks.

    yes the toolstation one will do it.
    Order a spare too.

    BTW, these are available in the supermarkets so you can pick one up while shopping.

    Personally I wouldn't use one with a water stop as they do seem to restrict water flow , especially if there's one on both ends:ROFLMAO:

    Is a brass version better and longer lasting?

    I was being cheap...
    The toolstation price seems very good.
    Ignoring petrol and time costs of course
    Local pound shops have, but they want to sell a kit with other attachments.

    The brass ones last longer

    Sometimes Aldi or Lidl have them cheap in The Central Aisle Of Mystery in a set of attachments

    Even the brass ones eventually wear out. Especially the click-on connectors.
