All my quick connects are Truflate style, just have a few adapters to go to other style connectors when needed, also do not buy from HF, or big box stores.

As an aside to this I started inventory on all my air tools. I may need more plugs. Impact wrenches, drills, needle scalers, air hammers, grinders, die grinders, nailers, staplers, blow guns, etc, etc. I even have jigs with air pistons. And, of course, the foot pedal.
Surprising sometimes what you collect over the years.
