Default Quick Disconnects

In searching the plumbing fitting aisle at Home Depot I was unable to find the quick disconnects used in the original brutus 10 design. Upon, asking an associate for help I was directed to the brass air compressor fittings. Are these what were used on the original design? Or am I missing something?

I'm sure someone else has the part numbers, but I believe McMaster Carr might be the place to look.
I was unable to find anything decent QD-wise at any local hardware stores or plumbing suppliers.
I finally got sick of it and just ordered stainless camlocks for everything from bargainfittings.com

I may end up ordering from bargain fittings, but wanted to see what price they were offered at from HD.

I would think you need hydraulic disconnects not pneumatic.
