These special self-locking cam and groove fittings function exactly like our original camlock couplings. However, these fittings include special self locking arms. When these arms are fully closed, they automatically locks in place and remain locked until the finger rings are pulled.
WARNING, these are only suitable for stationary applications. The release mechanism is triggered by pulling the release rings in the same direction as the arm opens, so for this reason the arms can opened if dragged, or if something moves past and catches the release ring.
