2 Claims.
This invention relates to a quick detachable
coupling for connecting together generally cylin
drical parts and is particularly useful for pro
viding a leak-proof joint between tubular ends.
It is an object of the present invention to pro
vide a quick detachable coupling which consists
of a minimum number of parts adapted to be
easily machined out of bar stock and one which
provides a very positive and dependable connec
