Why does BRS recommend this?
Push connect fittings need the tubing to go in straight or a leak may be possible. Tube clips keep the collet on the fitting locked out to hold the tube into the fitting to help prevent leaks. Anytime you have a tight bend going into a fitting we highly recommend tube clips for safety.
Available in ¼" and ½" sizes.

If using 3/8" Pex tubing and fittings, you'd definitely want to stick with 3/8" components. 3/8" is a fairly uncommon size for our applications, and I'm afraid that we currently only carry 1/4" and 1/2" tubing clips.
All of the BRS RO/DI systems use 1/4" tubing!
