yeh i am gonna go do that, need to get some more coupler's too. I can only get the wilton ones i think at this store, u know the ones with the split in them...............what's with the split anyway? Does it have a purpose? It annoys me lol

I was piping the other day using that coupler and i think it caused my icing to leak out the top of the srewey bit. I kept adjusting it, the bag, the tip to stop it leaking but it just didn't want to icon_confused.gif

I really do want to figure out it's purpose lol

Edited to say: I went onto google and typed in the purpose of split in wilton coupler and i was reading down the page and saw that someone was asking the exact same question as me! SCORE i thought......then i read it was from cake central and that it was just what i had written on this post icon_redface.gif Damn it lol

UPDATE!!

Sooo, i rang a cake decorating store and asked them why there is a split in the wilton couplers lol

The guy said he thinks there is a split so you can attach something......have no idea what though icon_confused.gif

Huh? Attach what? LOL. Weird. All it does is leak icing.
FYI, it's happened to me too. I'll google something and then come right back to the same question i've asked on a forum!

Some of the tips, like 129 and 136 have a little metal wire to support the middle of the tip, the wire goes in the groove in the coupler. I couldn't figure it out either but someone else on CC answered it.

Aaahhhhhhhh thanks for solving the mystery!

For those couple of tips we have to suffer leakage using the rest of them lol

I have a couple of couplers that don't have the groove. I don't know if it is the brand or the age but there are some out there that are grooveless.

I've also got some with and some without. Needless to say, i use the ones without more often.

I use a #1s for all my outlining. You can't tell the difference between the #1s and the #1 just by looking at it, but it's definitely my choice for fine lines.

As for the notch in the coupler....I have a number of flower tips that have that wire support mentioned by denetteb, and they need that space to fit on the coupler. I also have a really tiny tip that doesn't even fit on the coupler because it's too small. Never gave it a thought when I was buying the stupid thing, but try to use it, and good luck!
