Hose socket

A hose socket should always be used together with a hose clamp and is used to make a hose connectable. The socket - the elongated end part - is slipped into the hose, and the hose is then secured with a hose clamp. This end bit is usually a screw coupling or, if it involves a different fitting, a quick coupling, and can be connected to the coupling - for example, the pump outlet - to which you want to attach the hose.
