Quick Coupler

A quick coupler or quick-action coupler is used in a hydraulic or pneumatic system to quickly connect lines without losing fluid or fluid pressure.  All couplings consist of two mating halves: the plug (male) and the coupler (female). Couplers can be used under a variety of pressure and temperature conditions.
