there isn't enough meat on that "t" to properly seal the tube.

You would need cable ties on BOTH sides of that little bump.

At the very least, the ties would have to go on the other side of the bump. (closest to the "T").

I would urge you to not, its uglier and I don't know about anyone else, but I find it a hell of a job to get the tubing over plastic barbs/t-lines. Much harder to get on than over metal barbs. Like they said, just change where the ziptie is going, for moar holding.

I personally have used danger dens 1/2 T and Y fittings. Both make excellent seals but once that tubing is on you need to cut it off :). I also use the danger den hose clamps on the plastic fittings so i don't crush them with the worm gear metal hose clamps by accident. No leaks yet going on 2 years :)

this is why you has leaks for zips are in wrong loction, must be past the ridge.

for placing tubing on tee, use hot water to soften tube an push on
