now that's one thing I haven't figured out yet. But, I quit using them. I just drop the tip in disposable anymore. I'm lazy..... icon_wink.gif

good question, but I don't know the answer either.

Ooh Ooh I know, I know.....it's because there are certain tips that have a little metal arm thingy inside of them and they won't go on a coupler with no notch cut out!!

Thank you, I've often wondered about that myself. I have that tip too, just haven't used it yet.

Basically couplers are for when you are doing different techniques with different tips with the same bag. That way
you only change the tip and dont have to make a bag for every tip you need.
