All-at-once hose coupling

The Hydra-Snap from Westendorf Manufacturing is a patented, multiunit, high-pressure coupling system that allows the connection or disconnection of all hydraulic hoses in one quick motion. Each hydraulic hose fastens to a self-aligning plate to create a hose assembly unit. The plate is keyed to prevent the operator from getting the hydraulic hoses mixed up. Rotating the lever 90° releases all the hoses. Positioning the self-aligning plate into the Hydra-Snap can reconnect hoses.

The Hydra-Snap costs $160 when purchased with a Westendorf loader. Contact Westendorf Mfg. Co., Dept. FIN, Box 29, Onawa, IA 51040, 712/423-2762, visit or, or circle 185.
