DIY loc-line CO2 reactor question

I want to make a powered reactor similar to those using a power head and a python gravel cleaner only using my canister filter return rather then a separate power head. I have a u tube return like this one.



I want to attach a gravel cleaner to it by replacing the nozzle with a threaded loc-line like this one.



Does anyone know if loc-line pieces will work with this type of return. I will need a female to female adapter but I'm not sure if the loc-line will fit into the u tube.

Thanks

Yes locline will attach to a u-tube. I believe you need this double socket: http://www.premiumaquatics.com/Merch..._Code=lockline
Look here for a picture: http://www.loc-line.com/products/thi...dquarter2.html . Be very careful if you are not using the locline pliers, the u-tube can collapse if it gets too much pressure on it trying to wiggle connectors on........DC
