There are many different types of couplings on the market, but one of the most popular and user friendly are cam and groove couplings. Some consumers also know of cam and groove couplings as camlock fittings or simply 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 a lot of experience with other types of couplings.

A Variety of Benefits

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

Quality construction. Most cam and groove couplings are well made, but the Ever-Tight, Tough-Tite, and U-Tite couplings are impeccably constructed, ensuring that you can utilize them daily and still count on them to perform.

Ease of 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, which creates 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 be put on and taken off with ease, no tools required.

Versatile. These industrial couplings are quite versatile.  They are offered in a variety of materials, sizes, and pressure ratings so they can be selected with specific projects in mind.
