2. Remove and discard the black nylon plug from the gray water
tube on the rear of the refrigerator.

enough, a V4"x 1/4"(6.35 mm x 6.35 mm) coupling is needed in
order to connect the water tubing to an existing household
water line. Thread the provided nut onto the coupling on the
end of the copper tubing.

two more turns. Do not overtighten.
