Red Head Brass is now the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of the patented SpeedSwivel FDC adapter — the firefighters’ solution to stolen or vandalized brass fire sprinkler & standpipe connections.

The Solution to Stolen or Missing Brass Swivels

When brass swivels are stolen or missing from an FDC, the male threads on a fire hose are no longer compatible without the use of a SpeedSwivel.

A SpeedSwivel is the missing link for firefighters to quickly connect and pressurize FDCs to achieve sufficient water and nozzle pressure to attack the fire. The Speed Swivel has teeth and sliding segments that will engage with the exposed groove on an FDC that has a stolen or missing brass swivel. A few spins of the easy-to-use rocker lug coupling and the SpeedSwivel connection is complete.

The SpeedSwivel was developed by a retired fire captain who also served as a fire inspector. SpeedSwivel has been placed on the inventory of hundreds of fire trucks in the USA and Canada including Chicago, Phoenix, Denver, Portland, and Toronto.

Made in the USA for durability and toughness and stocked at Red Head Brass distributors. SpeedSwivel is manufactured with the highest commitment to quality as are all Red Head Brass connectors.
