If memory serves me Exceed used to sell them at one time before he developed the Slick Connect. He then discontinued these fittings.

They look very similar (although a different colour) to the old medical plastic fittings i used around 10 years ago.
From memory they were nice and light but not very durable, so not used since.

Just Google: Medical quick connect .

They use more durable plastics now but you can get these in chrome metal as well.

To get a slick connect for me would also be a bit much cost wise.
But can always try these see how they work.

Sorry h-man these were being sold years ago - when new they were great and as said exceed started selling them but after a couple of weeks they were to badly damaged to work ( yes I know I trialled several of them - then went back to Rectus fittings )

Please keep up we are in 2019 - not 1999

That looks very close to a slick connect.  ???

Same for me.
Nice idea, but not for window cleaning.
It's plastic dragging along the ground.
It's not rocket science!

I wonder what rocket scientists use as an analogy?

So just have a look what a person said about the  Slick Connect in the comment under video.

Quote:  @Herman Wieland I was using the exceed slick connectors and I steppedon the female end and broke it....  I only use metal connectors just my preference.

You could use a metal one if not happy to use a plastic one like this one.

Anyway had a look only to find a better couple/connection right there in the UK you can buy.
This is an air fitting so should not break in a hurry.

We used this kit to attach to the hoses.
As far as know you can get this kit anywhere in the world.

Rectus 26.

Best and most durable connection out there in my opinion.
