This product was picked in preparation for setting up a pneumatic system for a new house. I've had it for approximately 2 weeks now and it is working well. It appears to be well built. It is easy to insert a hose into the coupler whether or not the tank is charged, easy to bleed an air tank with it, easy to install, and it holds air well. It installed easily as the hex shaped part of the unit is solid The snap in fitting slides easily. In the one test that I've done to date with it, there was less than 1 psi dropped on a tank holding 140 psi over a ten minute period which is close as I can measure which was as good as the unit with the coupler removed. It's price is extremely competitive compared to other big box and some online vendors. It is zinc plated versus some stainless steel units that cost considerably more.

Very easy to install and use. Comes preloaded with thread sealer for quick installation. Sleeve slides freely and easily accepts a male coupling. Construction is durable and can easily withstand a drop on a hard surface. A good solution to a previously broken coupler or an upgrade to a better coupler. Bearings lock the male in place tightly and securely
This works very well and is easy to install. the price is also very fair.

It works, is reasonably priced, and I like that it already has pipe thread “dope” on it.

This is a well made 1/4" coupler that is on par with the best of the imports. While well made, it does not compare to a Milton. It does have 4 locking bearings inside rather than the usual 3 that most imports have. It does not leak when used with mixed connector types so long as they are I/M type. It comes with thread lock compound already applied. There is enough knurling around the body so that you can unlock it with greasy hands. I have used it up to 155 PSI with no issues.

I have been using and abusing couplers for years. I needed to replace some of my brass ones that were pretty worn out. I thought at first to replace with brass again but since this is an indoor location i wanted to try out the steel option. I have been happy to this point. The steel option is very crisp and does not bind at all. time will tell but I do like this to date.

This is a classic male industrial steel coupler. I have never understood the reason for making both steel and brass couplings and fittings. Of course steel is stronger and brass softer but during my most recent visit to Home Depot the steel couplings were less expensive than the brass, but the mating fitting were the opposite. Since they are both industrial fittings the material doesn't effect functionality.

I have had a lot of leaking problems in the past with air coupler I found this one to be superior to all the others it threaded in to my compressor with ease tighten down with no issues when I plugged in my hose there was no leaking at all normally the fitting are loose and you get air leaks this is not the case with this coupler I am changing all my fittings to this style

We have installed this coupling on one of our shop air hoses, and I have instructed my guys to not go gentle.
The hose end has been bounced off the floor, run over by a fully loaded cargo van, and has been left in the rain on a few occasions.
So far, we haven't seen any issues at all. It's still airtight, and the finish is holding up well. There are the usual scrapes and bruises, but that's not surprising at all for a daily use item that's being given the thorough attention of steelworkers.
I have noticed that the slide collar will only freely spin one direction along the body of the coupler. This is not a design flaw, as the collar really only needs to move up and down - it's just something I noticed and wondered about.
The plug retention spring seems to hold up to repeated coupling of tools, too. I haven't noticed any weakening of the spring 'push'.
This definitely feels heavier than other couplings I've purchased over the years.
