Default Pro Flow vs Bargainfittings Cam Locks

Can anyone verify that the plastic camlocks at proflowdynamics.com are interchangeable with the stainless ones at bargainfittings? BF is out of the dust caps and I want to protect the couple hoses I have with stainless male ends on them. Thanks!!

Are you using 1/2" NPT fittings?

I don't think the polypropylene is interchangeable with the stainless at the 1/2" size. I believe the 1/2" sized poly fittings actually have mating surfaces equal to 3/4" sized fittings.

As you can see here, there are no poly caps or plugs listed in the 1/2" size.

I called them with this issue a few months ago because I had hoped to use 1/2" stainless fittings with poly dust caps and plugs to save $$.

BTW, stainless and aluminum parts ARE compatible at the 1/2" size and the aluminum is fairly inexpensive.
