  • O/A Quick Connects

    Anybody using quick connects have any say on their reliability,I've noticed as we all have how the ones for air end up.Planning on installing on some gear,ineart also.It's not so much of the cost of buying them being a waste ,but more so of being on site empty.Ever happen to anyone...what's the good and bad on these?

    Ive been using them since 1999, They work very well.

    The only problem I have is in the salt going down the road on my portable rig in the winter time they get a little clogged so I clean the with clean water and on the inerts I use W-D 40.

      I use them every day don't buy the western brass ones they are junk. The ones to get are the Koikes they last forever

          Up here in Canada we get really cold winter's ,they ice up and come undone for no apparent reason. I just find that the Koike's don't come undone as easy and are easier to clean. That's just my opinion. the Koike's are more money but I've never replaced a set and have gone through lots of western brass one's over the years. It could have something to do with them being all brass maybe,I don't know for sure.

            Thay're fine if you work inside, but put them out in the sand, dirt, mud and they are not so fine.
            Koikes live in the dirt and grit.

              Thanks I'm in Canada as well (Ontario)but my stuff is in the shop 99% of the time so they should last well for me.Wish I would have known about the Kiones though at the time of purchase.
