This quick disconnect is exactly what I needed for my planters on the deck. It enables me to move the planters without disturbing the drip line in the planter. No more hassles!!! It is super easy to separate the main 1/4” line coming up to the planter from the polytube below in order to move the planter for cleaning the deck or to rearrange the placement of the planters. It’s saved me a great deal of extra work. Highly recommend this product!!!!
