Air quick disconnects (couplers) types

A friend has this quick disconnect he uses on his shop air hoses that has this handy-dandy feature in which you can slide the collar on it to shut off the air while being hooked up to the air tool..

It uses the standard 'industrial shape' or 'industrial interchange' 1/4" nipples that is very common.

Anyone know of this animal? Where to buy?

I've looked at McMaster-carr and fastenal and a few others to no avail.

I can get a photo of it a little later, it may help jog a memory or two.

Found the brand name and model

The quick disconnect is made by Tomco. Series U2.

Now all I have to do is find out who sells them! Pretty nice piece, really.

They are not hard to find, even Home Depot sells them. Harbor freight usually has them cheap. I like the truflate version myself, but I got started on them in the 60's when my dad had a shop and that was pretty much all that was avaliable.
