4.7 / 5.03 ReviewsHigh QualityI upgraded to stainless steel fittings after getting a bunch of different sizes at a garage sale, and they are worlds better than plastic (which I also got in a lot.) They improve the brewing experience and are so functional I'd almost buy them at full price. Highly recommend.March 19, 2013A MUST haveThese are amazing... After a few years of brewing where we had continually talked ourselves out of spending the money on these we bit the bullet and fit all of our equipment with these. _x000D__x000D_They are very high quality, you get what you pay for. After just a few brews with these on now I would never brew without them. They make everything easier on brew day. We do pump through a plate chiller and it takes us 30 seconds to reverse the flow and clean it out thanks to these. _x000D__x000D_If you can, this is a great way to upgrade your equip and save yourself some time that could be spent thinking of new recipes or enjoying a brew!March 23, 2013Expensive luxuryThis hardware is a little pricey, but once you spend the money the equipment seems to be durable and makes brew day even easier. I use these with the female connectors on my Therminator and it works flawlessly. No drops or leaks unlike the plastic screw on fittings I bought from Lowes.March 13, 2013

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 3/8" 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!
