Nelson makes a nice blister pack of assorted quick releases designed for garden hoses. I have been using them successfully for years w/o a problem. Note; they have an o-ring, so dripping while a possibility is unlikely. Melnor makes some as well, as does a norwegian co witha name similar to Hagen [ but not called Hagen] Better garden centers are the best bet, while the HOme Despot and their ilk also sell some.
My next purchase will be a Filstar so I can eliminate some of my own plumbing.
