Wishing you could quickly disconnect the fuel line between your petcock and carbs without having fuel spill everywhere? Motion Pro have something just for that. Product number 12-0029, and here's our review!
In a nutshell, it's a quick release catch that has a shutoff built in to one side of it so that the fuel cannot flow when it is disconnected. They do a dual-sided shutoff as well, but if your petcock is on the non-shutoff side and is turned off that's going to do basically the same thing. Out of the packaging, the faces that clip together look like this:
...and the spigots that get pushed into your 1/4" fuel line:
Clipped together it's pretty compact - to release, push in the metal tab you can see here:
...and the two halves separate. So what does it look like in a line?
It certainly works as advertised, and it does make pulling the fuel line out from the petcock so you can remove the tank a mess-free affair... which is always handy for those times when it's off and on regularly while you're sorting out some issue or another. Essential? No. Handy? Yes! You can buy them on Amazon.com or on eBay!
