Push Button Style
A common quick coupling is the push button style coupling. The advantages of the KENT Systems coupling over a push button coupling are safety, ease of use, and efficiency. A pushbutton quick coupling will accidentally disconnect by just tapping the button and since they are spring loaded, the disconnect may be overly forceful. A common problem in some situations is the button may be hard to find especially if it is on the underside of an application, in a position that may be hard to press. At high pressures, the push button design is difficult to insert and dangerous when the couplings accidentally fly apart. With a quarter turn quick coupling the user can grip anywhere on the base of the product and turn it to connect and disconnect. Also, the ease of connecting and disconnecting is the same regardless of the pressure.
