Pipe size is an industry designation, not the actual size. View information about how to measure threaded and unthreaded pipe and pipe fittings. A complete coupling consists of a plug and a socket both sold separately that connect and disconnect quickly. Use them if you need frequent access to a line. All Schrader plugs are compatible with any of the Schrader sockets of the same coupling size, regardless of the pipe size or barbed hose ID.
