Very interesting!

I'll have to remember to bump around the museum more often!

I do remember a similar device that was popular in the early 90s, except it was for CO2 tanks. Basically, it allowed you to screw on co2 tanks with only a 1/4 turn.

This was back when 7oz tanks were still the standard but not nearly enough for the gas-hog guns of the days. So, instead of a bulky 20oz, you would carry 2-3 7oz tanks, and swap them every time your hopper emtied.

I still have a couple somewhere. They worked great until they started to wear out, and the tank would wobble around.

Pretty sure those were a Cooper-T creation. There was a post not too long ago about them on here that had some pretty nice photos to go along with.

I have a set that are anodized blue and have PMI stamped on them. I dug them up from the bottom of the discount/used bin at the local shop about 20 years ago. 1-ASA adapter and 3-bottle adapters. They always wobbled and leaked half the time plus the length they added just made them cumbersome.
