Question
Quick-Disconnects with Checkvalve

I know in this day and age most prefer electric retracts. But for those of use who still like "air" , has anyone used these?

More importantly, did they work as claimed?

Without a doudt one of the best check valves you can buy. I used to get them all the time from Tamjets and have never once had an issue. I still use them now but I will admit I've switched to electrics as well.
