    Just wondering if anybody recognizes this style of supply line and can tell me who manufactured it? The only identifying mark on the crimp is "EL". The nut is plastic and has two tabs 180 degrees apart from each other.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I tried that... that tool hasn't really proven that useful for stuff like this. Thanks though!

    There are many manufacturers of that type of supply line. Hard to tell which one it is from just a crimp.

    Here is a picture of the entire line. Usually it is the unique marks that help with ID so that's where I started.

    Thanks!

    Why do you need to know manufacturer? It looks like a normal 3/8xballcock supply line. You can pick one up at any hardware store.

    I agree with Rickyman. At home depot they might be called "toilet supply flex lines:
