QC Mate Quick Coupler Hand Clamp from XBoom

A common problem when connecting any quick-connect hydraulic coupler is that line pressure can build up, making connecting the couplers nearly impossible. The XBoom Coupler® QC-Mate(TM) quickly and safely solves that problem.

The QC Mate uses special shaped clamp jaws (13-ga steel tubing with large structural side gussets) that mount to a ratcheting hand clamp, providing powerful 600 lb clamping force. The Clamp Jaws accommodate both 3/8" and 1/2" and a second set accommodates 1/2" and 3/4" hydraulic quick couplers. It's compatible with all standard Flat-Face Hydraulic Couplers and Ag Style Hydraulic Couplers within those sizes.


  • 3/8", 1/2", and 3/4" Hydraulic Couplers
  • Most Utility Tractor, Skid Steer Loader, Track Loader, Mini-Skid Steer, Mini-excavator, Midi excavator, or full size excavator couplers
  • SEE "Will the QC-Mate work for my machine?" SECTION BELOW TO CHECK COMPATIBILITY

  • (2) Spare Pins
  • (4) Spare Pin Clips
  • Original IRWIN Jaw Pads and Stand


  • 600 lb clamping force
  • 12" clamp width

Will the QC-Mate work for my machine?


This tool is compatible with ALL standard 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 NPT nipples and fittings that attach to the back-side of Flat-Face and Ag Style Hydraulic Couplers. However, the Clamp Jaws need to engage the back-side of each coupler. Therefore, this device may not be compatible with some “Hydraulic Blocks” where access to both sides of the circuit are not accessible (this is the case with many CAT and Kubota skid steers and CTLs). Also, pre-measure your longest connection point distance (the spread) and make sure it is less than 12" (Contact us if you need a wider clamp, 18" option may be available for request). For the jaws to engage, you have to have access to the flat surfaces on the back of the couplers and a “shared center-line” for the clamp to align correctly and create an in-line clamping force.

  • Quick Couplers Won't Connect? Use The QC Mate | Skid Steer Solutions
    Pressure in the hydraulic lines is a common problem for skid steer and excavator operators. Many newer machines have a pressure relief valve, and there are a number of ways to avoid pressure build up in the lines, which you can learn about by clicking the video linked below. However, there is no way to avoid back pressure 100% of the time, and that is why the QC Mate is a game changer for so many operators!

  • Hydraulic Flat Face Couplers Won't Connect #6 21 15Aug21
    Hello folks. I had difficulty connecting my Grapple Hydraulic line Flat-Faced Couplers b/c they were under a lot of pressure. The use of a special hand clamp tool assisted and solved the problem. I think you can use this tool for flat-face coupler connectors as well as Pioneer "Poppet" AG coupler connectors. The Tool is called the XBoom QC Mate Hand Clamp made by Skid Steer Solutions. Here's a link to their site. Disclaimer: I am NOT in any way affiliated with Skid Steer Solutions nor did Skid Steer Solutions send me this tool for demo. I purchased the tool at my own expense out of necessity. If you too have stubborn hydraulic lines that simply do not want to connect b/c of built-up line pressure, this tool might be the tool to help you connect your Flat-face and AG couplers. In advance, I want to thank you for watching this video. Please feel free to leave a comment. Thank you and have a fine week, folks.
