This is selling for $14.95.  That’s a great deal all by itself.  Use this link and the price drops to $14.20.  Note that you’ll see this discount at checkout if it’s still available.

Feedback from HBF Reader Tony:

Used them on this last Saturday for my pump and kettle after giving them a good soak in some oxyclean and then sanitizer. They come apart easily and go back together without much effort. In the end, easier than the ball valves they replaced since they don’t take much effort to take apart – 2 of my standard ball valves were frozen shut and wouldn’t allow for a clean out. It took only an extra minute vs. a normal working ball valve to come apart, so not much more work. Now I know my valves are 100% clean as you can see every bit and scrub where needed.

Shipping was fast – US Postal Priority, and reasonably cheap. I picked up some silicone hose too, as they have it cheaper than most other places at by the foot prices. Maybe not quite as good as a 100′ bulk buy, but close.

ProFlow Dynamics Cam and Groove Quick Disconnects

Stainless Camlock Disconnects Homebrew

I’ve used ProFlow Dynamics Quick Disconnects on my kettles, mash tun, pumps and tubing for a long time.  They have worked great for me.  I put male connectors kettles, mash tuns and pumps and use female connectors for tubing.  These are made from Stainless Steel and are available in lots of configurations.  I also take the rings and pins off of these.

These are classified by Type.  That may mean something in “commercial cam lock fitting circles”, but I was initially confused by this.  Types are akin to model numbers.  For example, Type A is Female NPT to Male Cam and Groove.

Twitter Follwer Zac (@zacbdct) Says; “My quick disconnects of choice for sure. Very handy and easy to clean.”

Price start at just $2.03 (for the Dust Plug).
