Problems with quick connects

Anyone have problems with quick connects on their air tools/air compressors? Mine never seem to stay connected. I figured that maybe they are just cheaply built/poorly made. Anyone have suggestions on where to get new ones or a particular brand?

Maybe a little late. Go to Napa and get the industral connects. Make sure you always get the same type of connects. There are different kinds (I don't remember the names. Oh yea, buy both sides at once.

Putting a short section of hose on the spud end so the coupler does not drag will help, the spring in the coupler rusts and takes less pull to uncouple.

A 6 in section of hose makes a good handle, marks my hoses when I am working with other people and will let the coupler come round a corner or over the edge of a roof without letting go. I serve them on with electric fence wire. That is wrap very tight with a serving mallet.

What I have is a 1 foot section of FC107 hose #6 then the connections, It takes the stress off the connectors and allows you to get closer when jamming it in tight spaces. I use the "M" connectors. Just a thought!
