One thing I did not realize was the threads on the barb are tapered, cuz it's a compression fitting. I went to my local small hardware store, you know the kind with friendly and knowledgeable help. Chuck took one look at the fitting, went to one of those little drawers and pulled out the perfect nut. Scotts' idea to just thread it into a hole works fine too. I just like a tight and firm fit.
