I'm 1" short installing the hot water line for a new faucet. What's the simplest way to fix this? Is there a male to female extension?

    Connector is pre installed with the faucet I bought. What’s another solution?

    Your best bet is going to be to install a longer piece between the T and the shutoff valve.

    Get a 12 inch Speedy and loop it. Hold it with a couple zip ties. 
    Is the bull of the Tee for a dishwasher? Where's the valve for that?

    What’s a speedy? The right side is the cold and has a tee going to a RO unit.

    I use a 3/8" nut x 3/8" compression connector. I remove the nut and ferrule off the compression side and it screws into the end of the supply line on your faucet. The nut end screws into the valve.

    Do not get a nut x nut supply line. It only has female threads.

    Often wrong, never in doubt.

    you can get 3/8" supply lines with a compression fitting soldered on one end, that would do it.

    Lol. You think they’re going to solder? Or know how to, based on what they posted. They won’t even go buy a longer connector.

    A compression tee and cap, or additional Female by male compression straight stop. Both are available at box stores..

    No need to be a jerk. I would buy a longer connector but can’t. The faucet we bought a new connector cannot be replaced. Be helpful not rude.

    Thanks! The tee would work. Is there a way to get similar without it being a tee, just straight?

    Well, yes. I sort of assumed the OP had already thought of using a simple mail to female connector -- either flexy hose or what have you... and rejected that option. Silly me.

    That’s exactly what I’m looking for but cannot find it.  What would that be called so I can search for it online say via Home Depot? Thanks.

    you can buy it already made up for faucets that have 3/8" supply stubs

    Thanks for the help. That doesn’t look like male to female though no? That’s what I’m having difficulty finding.

    The compression ferrule and nut (either the one that came with the stop valve or the one from the riser) connects the copper tube end of the riser to the supply stop and the nut and gasket deal on the faucet supply hose connects to the compression fitting on the riser.

    Ah... take the nut and ferrule off one end and connect that end to the faucet connector... connect the other end, with it's nut and ferrule still on, to the valve...

    You can just get a regular supply line and a 3/8 compression by 1/2" male adapter. Screw the supply line onto the valve, and use the adapter between this line and the one from the faucet.

    This is the one I showed you. A plumbing supply company or Ace Hardware store should have them in stock.

    If they only have a nut x nut supply connector (the second picture from my original post), purchase a 3/8" compression coupling and remove the nuts and ferrules to change one end from female to male.

    There are a hundred ways to do this if you get a piece of 3/8" copper tubing and venture in to the fittings section.
