The Mast Quick Coupler is designed to allow a small wind turbine to be rapidly attached to a mast. Operation is as simple as pulling the slide ring down, inserting the wind turbine, and releasing the slide ring. The coupler uses four ball bearings and an alignment key to lock the wind turbine from sliding out or rotating.
