The OPW 68EZR Reconnectable Breakaway has been specifically designed for retail fueling operations to help protect dispensing equipment and customer vehicles from potential damage and customers and attendants from a potential hazardous situation in the event of a drive away. The OPW 68EZR uses patent pending, UL Listed innovation to ensure that it is not only the fastest and easiest breakaway in the industry to reconnect but also delivers the greatest peace of mind that it is securely reconnected. The 68EZR delivers trusted OPW quality and proven technology to the retail fueling market at the lowest cost of ownership.

Unlike any other reconnectable breakaway, the OPW 68EZR features:

  • Fast and Easy Reconnection
  • Clear Visual Reconnection Instructions
  • An Audible Click and Green Indicator confirms it is Secure
  • Trusted and Proven Technology
  • No Annual Maintenance
  • Lowest Overall Total Cost of Ownership

The 68EZR features simple “Push-Twist-Click” technology, which makes any drive-away scenario a snap to fix. Simply realign the valve, push in and then twist until you hear the audible click and see the green indicator in cover's outer shell. Unlike other breakaway valves, the click sound and the green indicator give you complete peace of mind assurance that the valve has been securely reattached. The 68EZR is built on the proven and trusted 66REC breakaway technology platform - the most specified reconnectable breakaway in the world since 1996. A time tested, field proven solution.
