Abstract:

A quick release coupling designed for use on the divers supply line at the helmet non-return valve is given subjective and strength tests. It is found to be readily manipulated by an assisting diver with bare hands but that difficulty is encountered if deep sea divers gloves are worn. The coupling system works rapidly and reliably and has adequate strength. Modified author abstract
