i'm still trying to find camlocks for my noise cannon. no luck obviously or i wouldnt be writing. can you tell me what they are primarily used for. i dont really want to tell the salesman i'm building a cannon. he'll probably take down my license plate number or something. thanks.


Look at farm supply stores, Tractor Supply carrys some. I bought my poly ones at Northern Tool and Equipment. McMaster carrys them online as well...BCarms offers the 2" and 3" I believe. You won't find them at Lowes or Home Depot.

They are used primarily with heavy duty sprayer equipment and other farm implements.

i wanted to thank you guys for the help with my cannon. i tried the 3 layer masking tape disk and it was loud. a good echo off the buildings across the lake. i only used hairspray so far since i'm not sure how to fill it with propane. i'm guessing propane will be even louder. i made my own cam lock type device using a pvc reducer with a slotted hole and a pin thru the barrel, only because i was too eager to wait for camlocks.
