I've got an ice-maker outlet box similar to the one in the image below, and a refrigerator we'd like to put as close to the wall as possible. But as you can see, anything connected to the 1/4" compression outlet sticks straight out of the wall, and any flexible tubing I've found requires 6" to 8" to make a 90° turn comfortably. I thought -- no problem, just use a 90° ell to make the turn, then a large loop to direct the other end of the flex line to the (vertical) refrigerator inlet. But so far, I haven't found one -- they're all FIPS on one end. How do the pros solve this problem?
