410a charging

I have a 410a charging kit but it has a 5/16 inch female threaded connection to a service port. My low side charging tubing is 1/2 inch but the port valve is 1/4 inch female. I have looked everywhere for a 5/16 male to 1/4 inch female adapter. Cannot find anywhere. I have seen the opposite configuration. Where can I get a connector to simply change my 5/16 charging hose to a 1/4 inch??
Or even a piercing adapter that has a 5/16 connection. Every piercing valve I have seen (hundreds) are 1/4 inch valve connection.

Please consult your service company.
Discussing charging isn’t permitted here.

Welcome to the forums.

The administrators of DIY have requested no charging discussions be allowed in the general forums as the purchase and handling of most refrigerants requires an EPA certification and we have no way of knowing or checking of who is certified.
