What's the difference between a beadlock and barb fitting?

ScotY on Tue December 01, 2009 3:00 AM User is offlineView users profile

I have very little exposure/experience so I had assumed a beadlock fitting, the actual part that contacts the inside of the hose, was just machined grooves, for lack of a better description. The beadlock fittings I have looked like that, definately not something you'd describe as a barb. Now this fitting I found, can't quite decide if it's a barb or not...can anyone tell? Sorry, the picture isn't real clear.

A beadlock fitting has the ferrule on it and it has slots cut into the fitting so when you crimp it has something to crimp into. The barb fitting has the raised machined slots that grab the hose when you slide it over it.
