Angry Convert drip irrigation to soaker hose system

I hooked up a drip irrigation system to a sprinkler head using 1/2" tubing and fittings. Now the wife would like to convert the system using soaker hoses rather than the drip irrigation tubing. I need help with getting the correct fittings to attach the soaker hose to the main feed from the old sprinkler head.

Thanks

Did you just convert one head to drip irrigation with other sprinkler heads still inline ?
Results using that method are seldom satisfactory as not enough water is delivered to the drip.

You're connecting to the line..... not the sprinkler head.
Remove the 1/2" barb to 1/2" threaded connector and use a 1/2" barbed splice fitting to go from poly to plastic.
