Seems stainless 2 piece don't connect when hot . Brass for me Foster has been the best . It don't make a difference if they are stainless tipped.
Which has been the best for you ?

The stainless males are fine but always had problems with the females. Our wands just happen to have stainless males and they last forever

But our solution lines have the females from wanders with the cool cover, they are brass and usually outlast the hose.

Do you lube them with anything?

If you are having trouble connecting QC's, typically the locking rib on the male has developed a slight burr. A quick couple spins with an adjustable wrench to eliminate the flare from use immediately fixes that.

Most SS females have dual viton o rings. Cobb supply sells them with Teflon o rings is you are a high heat guy, for even more longevity.

Yes I lubricate them with a food grade teflon lubricant found at ACE hardware. Lube withstands high temps 400 degrees I think. Stuff is wondrful, wont hurt rubber and pretty much very safe, Expensive yeah but its worth it IMO. can remember the name but it comes in a small grey tube, they also make a spray and oil.

I'll look for that. Is it in an aerosol can or dropper type application?
