No Leak Swivels
The ONLY swivels that don't leak. It also doesn't get in the way of using the tool it's connected to. Milton has always made top notch pneumatic equipment. That's pretty much all you can say about an air swivel.

I recently replaced the transmission in my car and this product helped greatly allowing me to position the air tool in tight places without fighting with the force of the air hose. I plan on putting these on all my air tools

Actually held up
This is the third swivel I have bought........this brand will actually hold up and not end up leaking air after the first few turns.

swivel is a real time saver - maybe a life saver too, for someone who
has tripped over their own air hose as many times as I have. It keeps
the hose out of your way.
I bought two - on my impact wrench gun I put the air swivel between the
leader hose to the gun (snubber hose) and the air supply hose.
On my air rachet wrench I put the swivel at the wrench and attached the
leader hose to the swivel. When the rachet wrench is held parallel with
the ground the hose does not have a 90 degree bend at the end of the
wrench and it keeps the hose from tangling.
You pay a price to use the swivel - about a 10-15 psi pressure drop and
so if your tool is gasping for more air than your compressor can
deliver the swivel isn't helping solve that problem.
Tip: Put a leader hose on every tool you want one on and leave it
there. Use quick disconnects everywhere else. Taking threaded fittings
apart all the time and then reconnecting the fittings weakens the hoses
at the fittings and that is what makes them leak.

I mounted this swivel at the compressor. It allows the air hose to go in any direction without putting any stress on the hose. My only regret is that I only ordered one.
This belongs on every air tool.
