The breakaway connectors are a unique latch assembly that consists of two independent mechanisms that secure together and breakaway at 9lbs of pressure. Our break-away adaptors are independent of the current shirt connectors so that they can be placed in a location on the tubing that is best to breakaway in an emergency situation. These are designed to be connected and disconnected thousands of times unlike other brands.
This latch design prevents unintentional release under standard operating conditions but allows for hands free release in an emergency. (2 pcs, ¼” hose connectors) It takes about 9 pounds each of force to release our break-away connectors. Others brands need around 40 pounds each to release.
