Per the Clippard hardcopy catalog, both 15006-3 parts have the 1/4-inch NPT
threads on the end. The "-NP" signifies "Nickel Plated" rather than the
standard brass. (Note the online catalog is sometimes a bit confusing; here
it only states 1/4 NPT on one of the two parts)
If you are in the USA, I would suggest that the regulator uses NPT -
National Pipe Threads - which is a USA standard.
Suggest you take a close look before you order another part - from anyone.
My regulator came with both a huge hose barb and also a shutoff valve. I
removed both and found a 1/4-inch NPT female port on the valve itself.
