First World problems, but good heavens why there is no "standard" for quick disconnects, etc.

You've got Automotive, Industrial, ARO, V-style

Same with the couplers?

Had a heck of a time finding the right quick disconnect for my pressure washer gun...my foam cannon fit on the end of my wand, but not my gun. Found a brass one that fit at Tractor Supply but has already corroded. Found a steel one online that fits. Never knew it was so complicated.

Hope everyone is well.

I bought this one to deal with anybody that comes over with oddballs, and all of mine are the Industrial type (middle above)


And the answer is that MOST people use the "Industrial" style anyway...

Reminds me of back in the day when I use to do truss and plywood. Everyone used different fitting for their nail guns. It always was a pain so I made something like this that had all 3

The other feature I like about that Milton is that it has an independent shutoff/vent (The red portion of the body) from the disconnect coupling.



If you've never used a QD coupling with this feature, once you do, you'll hate going back...

There are endless combinations and it can be a headache. We sell them and not only is it a problem with the connections, there are so many standards on the threading npt, metric, bsp, bsw, etc. etc.
