    Is there any secret to the flat faced hyd hose quick couplers? Im having a problem with one staying locked(female hose coupler). It keeps poping off the male end on my Bobcat. I took the male and female hose ends and put them together(like I store my attachmants when not used) and they coupled and locked like they should. Thanks

    Sometimes you need to rotate the collar and pull it back.

    Check for wear on the male end. I've seen the male ends get chips in the metal.
