Disposable maple Sap Spouts and adaptors manufactured with the smallest tube and very thin intelligent walls: Made of flexible ultra-resistant, transparent plastics.

More than half a million maple sap spouts have been tested on the field in 2013 season, resulting in, more water collected, better quality syrup, damage to the trees reduced to a minimum , no leaks, very low maintenance and a lots more profits.

Plus, you don’t need to use a professional to drill the hole and to install the sap spout in your maple trees, the sap spout adapts to the hole even if it’s not a perfect round hole.

GDE-2: Star # 2 .221"

GDE#2
GDE-2-C

The most powerful and innovative product on the market, allowing tapping and
untapping by hand (offered in clear and transparent blue)
, ensuring the best health of your maple trees at a lower cost, which doesn’t leak throughout the season. Easy installation and uninstallation of the tubing
without the use of any tools or having to cut the tube, as are the other products in this “Star” category.

The adaptors have a small tube which is 0.221" in diameter ensuring the maximum health of your maple trees. The variable thickness of the very thin “intelligent” walls of the tube, which is from 0.023" to 0.035", is distributed along the length of 1.575" of the part entering into the maple tree. At the tapping notch, during the installation, the diameter of the tube entering in the drilled notch adapts gradually by reducing its diameter depending on the hardness of the tree bark and the oval shape of the hole. It also can be used with a bucket by adding a hook on the prefabricated hole of the sap spout.

Very important: The strength needed for tapping by hand is minimal, push and turn on entering, and verify the solidity. A small reduction in its diameter of 0.015" durring tapping is enough to prevent leaks and the frost from pushing it out. It is flexible and adapts to the tree notch regardless of temperature.
Untapping is easily done by hand by turning the sap spout 1/4 of a turn to prevent peeling of the bark, which is retained by the maple sugar.
The untapping can easily be done also by hand, by turning the adaptor 1/4 of a turn, preventing peeling of the bark which is usually retained by the maple sugar.

We recommend that this sap spout be used with the collar 5/16" facilitating tapping and untapping, refer to the description below, collar tube 5/16".
The only way of perfectly disinfecting the tube is by removing the sap spout.

GD#2A
GD-2-AD-C

For those who keep their used maple sap spouts 5/16" and 19/64" on the tube.

The adaptors have a tube of 0.221" in diameter ensuring the best health of your maple trees. The variable thickness of the very thin “intelligent” walls of the tube, which is from 0.023" to 0.035", is distributed along the length of 1.575" of the part entering the maple tree tapping notch. During installation, the diameter of the tube entering the sap spout adapts gradually by reducing its diameter depending on the hardness of the tree bark and the oval shape of the drilled hole.
While maintaining ample strength and holding the sap spout in place for all the season, it collects the maximum amount of sap water from the most productive layers without any leakage throughout the season.
Very important : The strength needed for tapping is minimal and the untapping can easily done by hand, by turning the adaptor 1/4 turn, preventing peeling of the bark, which is retained by the maple sugar.

The variable thickness of the very thin “intelligent” walls of the tube, which is from 0.020" to 0.043", is distributed along the length of 1.575" of the part entering the maple tree tapping notch. During the installation the diameter of the tube entering the sap spout adapts gradually by reducing its diameter depending on the hardness of the tree bark and the oval shape of the hole. While maintaining ample strength and holding the sap spout in place for all the season, it collects the maximum amount of water from the most productive layers without any leakage throughout the season.

GD-R-90: Sap Spout # 90 = .339"

GD#R-90
GD-R-90-C

90 degree maple sap spouts with very thin tips.

The thickness of the part entering in the tapping notch is from 0.025" to 0.040" for a distance of 0.450"
from the end of the tube that is 1.625" long, which allows for easy installation. For the good health of
your maple trees it is very important to only introduce the thin portion of the spout into the most productive
layers of the maple tree and that the thick portion of the sap spout remains in the tree bark to prevent
splitting of the tree which would cause damage similar to that caused by thick walled maple sap spouts. We recommend that the sap spout be used with the 5/16" collar; facilitating the installation and uninstallation of the tubing, see 5/16" collar description below.
Very important : The strength needed for tapping is minimal and the untapping can easily be done by hand, by turning the adaptor 1/4 of a turn, preventing peeling of the bark which is usually retained by the maple sugar.
