A common problem when connecting any quick-connect hydraulic coupler is that line pressure can build up, making connecting the couplers nearly impossible without releasing the pressure. The XBoom Coupler® QC-Mate(TM) quickly and safely solves that problem.
The QC Mate uses specially shaped clamp jaws (13 Gauge 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.
Will it 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. 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.
