    I need a female to female adapter to fit my sink sprayer to my shut off valve. Any ideas? I have a photo with a dime next to it for size reference

    Those are not made to be mated together. The shut-off valve takes a 3/8" compression and the sprayer screws into the valve body somewhere.

    Not possible. If anyone tells you they have done it, they are lying. Purchase a ready made bidet attachment. You will spend less than trying to cobble a cluster F together...

    So the bidet fitting doesn't look anything like what I need. And the rest of these replies are useless. Anybody trying to actually help me here? No more rhetoric please.

    Do these fittings have specific names?

    As stated above, these are not compatible fittings. That is as straightforward as I a plumber can be. You may be able to find yourself a service plumber who has a trick to make it work, or you can go to the hardware store and try to find pieces to make it work.

    Some idiots come in here trying to either make big bucks, or learning how to spray their mama's butt with these dumb hose sprayers. Problem is they are unaware that we are all volunteers here, so you dis one of us, you dis all of us. As they say, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. You are now being banned from the forum. Feel free to go to another site, where you will have to pay to get the same answer.

    It is crazy that some people just don't want to hear anything but what they have in there head. I wonder sometimes why they even ask for advice sometime because as soon as it is not what they want they get mad.
