Quickly and easily connect and disconnect hoses from one machine to the other. FazLok™ 4" Quick Disconnect Fittings unique design completely eliminates the need for tools when detaching and reattaching dust collection hoses - a twist of the wrist replaces tedious loosening and retightening: Male fittings attach to hose ends with hose clamps (purchased separately). Female fittings are designed to screw mount onto dust collectors and machinery (due to potential variety of applications, screws not included; fittings not predrilled). Once in place, hoses can be quickly and easily moved from one machine to the next. Durable, clear plastic bodies make it possible to see the flow of chips, allowing for hose adjustments to ensure maximum dust collector efficiency. Matched taper seating prevents vacuum leaks, while a positive lock prevents uncoupling during use. USA 960-805 - FazLok™ 4" Quick Disconnect 4 Piece Starter Kit includes two female and two male fittings.

If you're building a dust collection system and you'd like to have proper quick disconnect parts, these are about the only real options on the market. Somehow I guess this company has a patent on locking connectors or something because no one else builds anything like it. So if you want to be able to have a twist lock, or really ANY kind of locking, connector - this is it.
The product works in terms of being reasonably sealed with no air leakage, and actually connecting and disconnecting. However, the one little plastic protrusion on the side that holds the entire thing together is woefully inadequate. At the very least there should have been connectors on either side, preferably at least 3. But no - you only get one.
So does it hold? Yes. But is it going to stand up to any sort of abuse? NO. The first rough treatment and that little plastic bump is going to pop off leaving you with a need to replace an overly expensive piece of plastic.
I bought a few for home use. But wouldn't recommend them for a shop.
