How do Kew Quick Connects work?

Hi All

Please excuse the duplicated question from another thread, but I could do with some feedback before returning what I currently think is a faulty item.

Iím in the process of fitting everything together for my new hose/gun/lance set-up but have a question regarding Kew Quick Connectors:



The two pieces go together, but donít seem to lock; the probe just pulls freely back out of the female half.

This doesnít seem right and looking at videos online, it seems there should be some sort of action required to separate the pair.

Any advice?

Thanks

Never used them. But don't you have to pull against the spring action on the female part to insert? How do you do that without fitting to a lance?

Works like a quick connect except you pull the black bit forward which retract the ball bearings inside, slide the Kew adaptor in fully then release the black bit for it too seal

Thanks for the replies.

I had it fitted to a gun to test it out initially, like a dry-fit prior to PTFE.

I tried pulling the black bit forward but it didnít seem to lock in place. Iíll have another go later.

Cheers.

You have to push it quite hard, once you've done it you'll understand how you need to push it. Are you kews new and stainless steel

Had the same issue, you just need to be more forceful and make sure you feel it it lock, otherwise like you say it just pulls out.
When you push in the Kew in pushing it in to black plastic fitting, you then pull the black fitting as hard as you can back towards the the Kew fitting, and your see it lock,
Glad it wasn't just me this has happened to : Thumb

Have since discovered just how hard it needs to be pushed. Thanks all.
