Air Tool Safety

Question:

How do I securely fasten my air tools to the hose so that they do not fly off? Thank you for giving this important matter your immediate attention.

Answer:

Hello,
Make sure fittings are screwed into the air tool. Hose end has a quick connect that the male fitting fits into.  Either the male fitting or the quick connect needs replacing. The quick connect has a knurled end that may be loose, allowing the retaining balls to be loose. Many times the male fitting gets worn, allowing the quick connect to pop off.  This can be dangerous allowing the hose to be a whip.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
