I use flash cuffs and the sound of leaking air is like putting nails to a chalk board.

I have used Cool Cuffs for years. Use the Latch set. Use Gorilla Glue to hold the cuff to the hose. Ive never had problems with leakage.

The owner on the other hand.....
Wonder how gorilla glue would hold up against pure d limonine • as I drag it over prespray. I really enjoy buying American but boy, it’s frustrating when • for whatever reason, a co. decides just NOT to make a superior product. I have been consistently disappointed w Mytee products • of the products I’ve used • specifically, the hog / pigglets / cuff linx.

• • not just throwing trash out there either • I‘ve have said, “I’ve been using <-—- that means years now.

reason I use Gorilla Glue is because it will hold it in place for quite some time but also come apart if I want it to. Probably have to reglue it every three years or so.

I use flash cuffs as well, all ours leak around the button as well as the seam in the joint. Hose runs under 200' its prob not alot of loss but annoying. On our long hose runs I tape all the joints to seal them..

Bought a handful of the cool cuffs to test and really like them. Planning on replacing all of ours soon!

Seems to be coming from the threads. I don't use any kind of tape, glue or lube. I dry screw them.

Well, that’s what I’m trying to get away from • leaks !

When I did a furniture store cleaning
( 8500 sf ), <—— ( it’ll be 14,000 sf. next time I tell t story - lol ), on Halloween last yr, I ended up taping 350’ of m / f cuff linx • • wanna know how long that took ? • don’t ask.

Yeah, I’ve been taping seams for nine yrs. Seems like quality might be hit and miss if some are real happy w t cool cuffs and some have to tape them like I do my cuff linx. Well, I reckon I already have these bought & paid fir. / & installed. Although they come apart now more then they ever use to - alway did come apart • from d one.

I have to get away from these. Who owns cool cuffs • by t way ? Why is he persona no grata ?

I'm done with all snap cuffs went back to vinyl cuffs and never had any more drips since . The convenience of unsnaping a hose vs dripping or cracking a tile is not worth the headaches. I hot melted my vinyl cuffs on and not a issue Since .

Love the convenience • it’s why I’ve put up w it for 9 yrs.
• • • cant get away w the vacuum leeks anymore. Don’t wanna buy another leaker.

I have the twist “lock” which is what I want as a replacement.

Used to use Twist "lock" but after a while they would lock up and it was a real pain to twist apart. Ended up lubing the rubber gasket which helped but would start locking up after a few more hours.
I have been using Flash Cuffs for 3+ years now, very good seal.
Vinyl cuffs were ok but what a pain in the winter to pull on and off.

Wow, how bizarre.
Do you mind sharing • who offered such exemplary service ?

I had a similar experience w a graphic design artist about a year ago • asked him to price his work • the dude wigged out on some organic / universal trust we must all have.

I very politely eased the conversation to an
“understanding“ close.
