The dictionary defines a fitting as “a small, often standardized part used to join other parts together properly.”
This is very similar to what plumbers refer as fittings. For the use of chromatographers, fittings consist of nuts with internal and external threads for both high pressure and low pressure connections. Also, unions, crosses and tees and adapters are considered fittings for both high and low pressure connections.
