How to remove Quick Connect from Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir hose

Need tip for removing the QuickConnect on brand new reservoir so I can thread it through the loop.

Hi @Hikersandy - Thanks for reaching out! To remove the Quick Connect from the hose, you should hold the hose in place with one hand, then turn the Quick Connect while pulling away from the hose with your other hand. To watch the process being done, this video demonstrates the process at the 0:55 mark.

Let us know if this doesn't work and we'll be happy to look into what is going on. Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

I just purchased one and can't remove the quick connect. It's pretty stuck in there. The video makes it look like it sure just twist and easily pull it. Is there another trick to it?
