5 Ways To Disconnect From Technology

We at 4GMF love technology. It helps improve our lives by making international communication easier, makes any answer just a click away, and gives us endless entertainment possibilities. However, technology can also sometimes disconnect us from the outside world.

Often, we spend too much time behind a screen, and not enough time enjoying our natural resources, and making genuine human-to-human connections. If you’re considering doing a  7-day or even a 30-day technology detox or reduction, here are a few ways to unplug.

The Inner Workings of LET-LOK®

LET-LOK® connectors are created for easy-of- use and assembly. Firstly, insert the tube into the entire assembly until the tube bottoms-out against the fitting body. Secondly, the mechanical force created by turning the nut clockwise, drives the two ferrules forward between the fitting body and the nut. Thirdly, the back ferrule is pushed up against the front ferrule’s tapered rear and the front ferrule is then forced into the body’s tapered mouth. Fourthly, the rear ferrule is swaged outwardly inwards on the tube while raising the front ferrule out in forming a full-faced seal on the tapered surface of the body.
