I personally have not had one let go. I have a fairly large collection of 10mx1, 1/8 NPT, and 1/8 BSPP male and female fittings. I also have a few dies in these thread sizes. Some are compatible and some are not. The ones that don't fit are usually because of the male side being slightly too large. I have had a few Oring failures because some of the couplings use different sizes or double Oring designs and the wrong male side can pinch or squash them. Nearly all of my fittings, hoses and gauges are of the cheap Chinese type. A little bit of common sense and the right type of washer or Oring is the main thing in solving compatibility issues or if you have deep pockets, only use one brand and replace all your guns, pumps, filters and compressors fittings with the same brand.
