Default Adding a QD to a CFC

My CFC just has a straight shot of copper coming out that I slip tubing over when I'm chilling. I have to put a clamp on the end to hold the tubing there otherwise it shoots off with the force/pressure from the pump. This ultimately tears up my tubing so much so that I need to trim it every few batches. Is it possibly to put a male QD fitting on the end of the copper tupping? If so how would I do that? My DIYness is lacking sometimes.

compression fitting FTW. If it is a copper chiller, just go to your local hardware store and pick up a brass one.

I soldered 1/2" MPT copper connectors on my connections that works well.

Sometimes it's the simple things that we totally don't think about. Hadn't even thought of soldering. Thanks.

No problem at all. In 900 posts, at least one of them was useful...
