    Just looked at the review of the Hunt coupling, you may well have solved a 50+ year dilemma for this moeller, thank you.

    Thanks, I was thinking of buying these but was unsure as to whether they any good. I get fed up with tension lock couplers uncoupling themselves. These look really good.

    I bought a set of ordinary and close coupled units, the big issue I did have was the tails pulling out of the NEM pockets. In the end I put them in hot water and bent them out. I did point this out to the Supplier, I got an apology, but the next set were just as bad. Once I had bent the tails out they were perfect.
