Abstract : The patent describes a coupling for interconnecting lengths of flexible hose having identical half members including cooperating complimentary surfaces which upon abutting the halves together and twisting them in opposite directions cam the halves together into a tight fitting connection. Spring biased detent pins serve to permanently secure the halves in the coupled position when the adjacent ends of the connected hoses are compressed together.
