There are a variety of couplings on the market, but one of the most popular and user-friendly are cam and groove couplings. Some buyers also know cam and groove couplings as Camlock fittings or camlocks. Whatever name you know them by, they are a popular type of hose coupling. Many prefer them because they are easy to use even if you don’t have much experience with other types of couplings.


A Variety of Benefits

  • Long life: Many consumers enjoy cam and groove couplings because they will last.  These well-built fittings can withstand ongoing use and hold up well for years.  Knowing you won’t have to replace the coupling in the near future makes a great purchase.

  • Quality construction: Most cam and groove couplings are well made, but the impeccable construction of the Ever-Tight, Tough-Tite, and U-Tite couplings ensure that you can utilize them daily and still count on them to perform.

  • Easy to use: Cam and groove couplings are very simple to use. The cams located at the end of each lever on the female end align with the circumferential groove on the male end. When you turn the levers to the locked position, the male end is pulled into the female socket creating a tight seal against the gasket inside the female socket. The cam and groove coupling is a simple fitting that is easy to use, even for those who don’t have much prior experience with couplings.

  • Quick on and off: Cam and groove couplings are beneficial because they can easily be put on and removed, requiring no tools.

  • Versatile: These industrial couplings are quite universal. They are offered in various materials, sizes, and pressure ratings so they can be selected with specific projects in mind.
