dishwasher hookup from 1/2" tubing

My old dishwasher was connected directly to 1/2" copper tubing with a compressionfitting. I want to use one of the flexible lines for moveability, but don't know the best way to do it. All I can find at HD/Lowes is a 1/2 to 3/8 compression to compresson adapter and a FIVE foot flexible 3/8 compression to 3/8compresson at the d/w, called a dishwasher hookup. Currently I just reconnected the new d/w with the old 1/2 pipe to 1/2 compression 90 degree, but it tethers the d/w and needed alot of torque to prevent leaking.

Is there such a thing as a 1 or 2 footlong 1/2 tubing compression to 3/8 female compression flexible (or 1/2 female compression) to not have to use such a long flexible? Thanks.

You could makeup such a connection using a regular "long" ss flex supply line with compression fittings on each end. The ss flex supply line comes in different lengths, and you should be able to find the length that you need.
I would install a quarter-turn ball valve at the 1/2" for a separate dw cut-off and come off of that.
Good luck!
