DetailsStainless Steel Male Quick Disconnect 1/2" Barb
- Details & Instructions
4.5 / 5.06 ReviewsExpensive , but worth itThis is durable and made of quality, heavy stainless steel. It seals perfectly, and never leaks. When I added some new equipment I purchased a bunch of quick disconnects. They were expensive, but my brew day is so much easier with them. I can set up and take down everything much faster. I can reconfigure things and its no sweat. Click, Click, and everything is connected. And no leaks._x000D_March 14, 2013Quality for a price.These had always been on my dream homebrew setup list, but I'd never considered buying them due to the cost. So when I found a bunch of them at a garage sale, I was pretty happy about the situation. (Tubing is one of the best things to buy at garage sales.) Now the system is so much faster and the stainless steel is great.March 19, 2013Expensive but goodIts certainly a good disconnect, made of SS, and seals well. Its also pretty expensive. I use them because it's a one time cost and I brew a lot.October 6, 2013Good qualityThe best quick disconnects I've used. I had some cheaper QDs that didn't hold up so I am not making that mistake again. Buy good QDs and they last a life time.February 18, 2014Great Product but PriceyWorks like a champ, I am using these for a fermentation chiller setup. Very high quality. Best of all they are nearly full port unlike cam-lock the tubing fitting is no where near 1/2. Although cam-locks are close to half the price. The female side is also great, releases and engages very easy also unlike a cam-lock, cam-locks can be very stubborn. If I could do it all over again I would have used these fittings on my HERMS setup. Save your money and get the good stuff!February 13, 2013ownerI like the stainless quick connects. they are very handy. The reason I won't rate them high is because they leak. the male/female connection seems very loose, causing the oring to not real good enough.March 15, 2016

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersWhat material is the seal made from? Is the spring stainless as well? Do the male fittings seal also?Stainless Steel Male Quick Disconnect 1/2" BarbBEST ANSWER: It's a ball lock connection. I haven't fully taken it apart to see if the spring is stainless but anything that comes in contact with liquids appears
To be SS.I don't fully understand what your asking but the ball bearings "snap" into place and as long as it's the right diameter and you use hose clamps when you can everything should stay sealed. I did loose a bearing in one and it still seals it's just a pain to get off, hope that helps cheers!
