1/4″ Cole Palmer Luer Lock Disconnects + Making a CO2 Utility Line
Luer Locks disconnects are generally used in medical and industrial applications. Compatible male and female Luer Locks twist together to make a airtight, pressure capable connection.
I use Luer Lock style connectors for a CO2 utility line for my draft system. That allows me to quickly and easily switch between a number of CO2 utility attachments that I don’t use on a day to day basis. The reason I chose Luer Locks is that they are generally inexpensive. You could also use these as a primary disconnect for your CO2 system.

- Cole-Parmer Male luer with lock ring x 1/4″ hose barb, nylon, pack of 25
These Luer Locks are made by Cole Parmer. They feature 1/4″ barbs to connect to compatible tubing. I asked the manufacturer for the PSI rating of these disconnects. I was told… “Thank you for your email. the fittings AO-45502-20 and AO-45505-19 are male and female fittings and compatible. The Psi rating for these fittings together is 100PSI”.
