ken_knechtMeet The Inventor

Ken Knecht, inventor of the KnechtionRepair tools, (“connection repair”) has been in the gas and steam turbine power plant maintenance industry since 1975. Years of experience in confined/tight places, encountering damaged threads on reusable swaged industrial, 2 ferrule type compression fittings, led him to design these remarkable tools.

Quality Materials

KnechtionRepair tools are 100% manufactured in the USA. Both the taps and dies are precision manufactured from heat-treated tool steel. Further, the tool steel taps and dies are TIN coated for durability and protection. The holders and pilots are manufactured from 7075 aluminum and fully CNC machined. After machining, the finished holders and pilots are anodized in different colours for easy and quick identification. The tools are then packaged in a clear PVC plastic container for clean, efficient toolbox storage.

Why You Need This Tool

KnechtionRepair tools are designed to make thread repairs to both the female and male ends of all major brands of swaged type two ferrule compression fittings. Due to their small design these tools can be used directly at the location of the damaged fitting. In most cases, the repair will be accomplished without removing the tube from the system. With the uniquely designed alignment holder and pilot, repairs can be completed nearly blind folded. Technicians can use these hand tools without any training. This will save the maintenance technician time and save the company money by avoiding additional down time.


I have been supplying Instrument Fittings and Valves for over 30 years.  Customers would constantly ask about thread dies for chasing damaged fitting threads. The existing ring dies were difficult to center properly in confined space. When I saw the Knechtion Repair tool I had a gut feel that this would be a great solution.
