RLS LLC will no longer supply its patented press fittings to Parker Hannifin Corporation for the ZoomLock brand. This is to help avoid confusion in the marketplace as to the source and quality of fittings sold under the ZoomLock brand going forward.
RLS is a subsidiary of Marmon Holdings, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company. RLS designs, develops and manufactures in America its patented fittings engineered for high-pressure connections in the air conditioning and refrigeration industries. By replacing the time-consuming and demanding conventional practice of manually brazing copper joints, RLS’s fittings allow for faster, more consistent connections that reduce total installed cost while enhancing safety.
RLS introduced its patented fittings in 2015 and partnered exclusively with Parker at that time. RLS has since manufactured and supplied millions of fittings for Parker’s Sporlan Division to sell under the ZoomLock brand. However, RLS recently decided not to renew its exclusive partnership with Parker.
Today, RLS’s patented fittings remain the only complete range of refrigerant press fittings and are featured in the Copper Tube Handbook. They are also backed by a 10-year limited warranty and proven by millions of fittings installed.
