Default Beer line question

Thanks to everyone who posted in my tap spacing thread. I come home from work today with a box of goodies waiting for me. I am a bit confused though. This is the distributor that I got:

CO2 Distributors, 3-Way: Rapids Wholesale Equipment

It appears as though the barbs on it are 5/16, which I didn't realize because it wasn't stated clear enough for my pea brain. My QDs are 1/4" so how would I go about hooking them up? Can I just heat my 1/4" vinyl gas line to get it to fit on the distributor?

Yes, dip the hose in boiling water, then push it on.
