      I use a 8fr x15" pediatric feeding tube for a catheter. The tip on the feeding tube fits on the luer lock without using an adapter. I use a 30cc luer lock syringe.

        I thought I needed these blue adapters (my doctor's office gave me a handful), but discovered (one day when I was without) that the tip of the luer lock syringe actually fits into the opening at the top of a Lo Fric catheter. I just need to be firm about getting it in there tight. You might try it if you're using Lo Fric.

          I also need those adapters. I can sort of get it on the end of the Luer lock syringe with the 8 lo fric but its super hard to get it on while holding the catheter in!! If you find them can you tell me too!?
