Default Stainless Quick Disconnects... out of stock everywhere?

Morebeer.com BACKORDERED
homebrewforless.com OUT OF STOCK

Looking to set up my ball valves and pumps with stainless quick disconnects I can put on my silicone hose.

Can't seem to locate reasonably priced fittings.

Anyone have some other sources?

Thx,

Q

proflowdynamics.com has larger diameter (I.D.) barbs than most others.

You can always get those Cam Lock QDs or whatever they're called. I use the ones you're talking about and it sucks that everyone has been out of stock so long, because I don't have as many as I need, but since I've already got about $200 worth of them, it's kind of too late to switch :/

Thanks. They have the camlock style which I don't prefer.

Have you actually used camlocks yet? If not, what is the aversion exactly?

Have you confirmed this with the barbed variety in your hands or are you going by the pictures? If the latter, it's a con.

I'm still trying to find a reliable source of stainless steel spring type disconnects.

We stock the camlocks.

They are the same and will interchange with all the 1/2" size camlocks being sold.
Here is a picture of how they work:

I love my camlocks. I strongly recommend them. I can't see reason to get the spring type unless you already have some.

With a little practice one handed connect/disconnect is not all that difficult. Flow rate is much better with camlocks as well. My only issue is more runoff when disconnecting after using. They hold more residual liquid then the spring lock disconnects I used to use. Have a towel handy to catch it.
