Two Drain Fittings are Included with the Hankscraft Valves we ship.
This extra 1/2" female threaded adapter can be used in place of the Barbed Fitting to allow you to use a 1/2" male threaded connection for running your Drain piping.
Most customers use a flexible hose on the Barbed Fitting, but in some installations, a threaded connection for running PVC pipe for the drain is needed.
That is why this "alternate" fitting ( adapter ) is included.
And while not explained in the Service / Installation Manuals,
I did find both fittings ( Barbed and alternate Female 1/2" NPT Threaded ) show in one of the diagrams ( page 6 of the HS manual ),
see diagrams below;
