Full 3/4" Flow
Unlike other brands that can dramatically restrict water flow and pressure, ELEY quick couplers deliver an unobstructed full 3/4" flow of water volume, enabling you to perform your watering tasks faster and more effectively.
Innovative design releases and separates the plug from the socket with a simple downward movement of just a 1/8 of an inch.
Durable O-Ring Seal
Made from extreme-duty material, this O-ring will provide leak-proof performance time and time again. For best results, apply ELEY Silicone Grease to the o-ring. Our silicone grease is specifically designed for this material and one application per year will extend the life of the o-ring and make the engage/disengagement action much easier. Do Not use any petroleum-based lubricant, which will damage the o-ring. You can also purchase replacement O-rings.
Stainless-Steel Locking Pins
Our revolutionary design uses two sliding stainless steel bars to lock the plug and socket into a leak-proof connection. Smooth, easy-release design.
Rugged Brass Construction
The commercial-grade forged brass body features precise tolerances and stainless steel components.
Eley uses an O-Ring style gasket for sealing the socket to the garden hose or faucet. The innovative design provides years of durable, leak-free performance.
10 Year Guarantee
You won’t find a company that stands behind their products better than ELEY. Our proprietary products are guaranteed not to leak, rust, or break for ten years.

Are replacement O-rings available for the plugs?
Yes. They are Item #3041. We also recommend purchasing a tube of ELEY Silicone Grease, which is designed explicitly for our O-ring material. Periodically applying a thin coating of this 100% silicone grease to the O-rings will extend their life and improve performance.
Does the socket stop the water flow when I remove the plug from it?
No. The plug cannot be removed while under pressure. The water pressure must be first turned off before the quick-connect set can be separated. There are two methods of doing this. First, by shutting the water off back at the faucet/water source. The second method is to install a ball valve directly before the socket. (See photo) This will allow you to shut the water off right at the quick-connect set, without having to return to the faucet/water source. Eley offers two garden hose ball valves that work perfectly for this application, our straight Garden Hose Ball Valve and our Swivel Garden Hose Ball Valve.
How will these perform in freezing temperatures?
You'll likely have some difficulty. Even with water flowing in freezing environments, it doesn't take much moisture to cause the brass parts to stick together. In particular, it may be challenging to get the sleeve on the socket to slide to disengage the plug. The quick-connect sets were designed to operate in above freezing conditions.
Is this product safe to use for drinking water?
Products marketed as "Drinking Water Safe" must adhere to the NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for Drinking Water System Components as regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The certification process is costly and time-consuming and simply too cost-prohibitive for companies whose products don't specifically target the "Potable Water" market. Accordingly, Eley Corporation has not submitted this product for the certification process.
Are they compatible with other brands of quick-connectors?
What maintenance is required?
Depending on the frequency of use, the O-rings on the plugs should periodically be coated with a thin layer of Silicone Grease. This will not only improve the performance of the quick-connect set but also increase the life of the O-rings.
