Default Plz help (hooking up icemaker)

I recently moved into a new house that has a water tap behind the
refridgerator. The tap looks like every tap I've ever seen behind
household toilets. That is, it has an oval handle and it has a male
3/8" hookup. There is a flexible hose coming out of the back of my
refridgerator that is a female 1/4" (plus it has a female to male

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an adapter that can change the
3/8" to 1/4". People in the hardware stores keep telling me I need an
icemaker hookup kit, but I have bought two different ones and they
don't come with the adapters I need.

Can someone help me figure out how to hook a 1/4" female onto a 3/8"
male? I know it shouldn't be hard but 3 different hardware stores
around here couldn't help me.

I recently picked up one of these at Lowes. A little more than what you
need. If you can't find a simpler adapter you could cap off the 3/8
outlet side of the tee.

Ahh, thanks Red Green. I have found one of these. Now I'm in search
for a female cap! lol.. But I'm one step closer.
