Title: CONNECTOR THAT DISCONNECTS BY PULLING ON A RING
Abstract:
A tubular connector (1, 1') comprises a female end piece (2, 2') with an axial orifice (4) designed for the axial insertion of a male end piece (6) fitted with a collar (7); the female end piece (2, 2') comprises a notched locking member (11, 11') designed to be radially elastically deformed by mechanical interference when the male end piece (6) is inserted into the orifice (4), and to lock to the back of the collar (7). It further comprises a ring (5, 5') which is mounted to slide coaxially to the orifice (4) around the female end piece (2, 2'), and which forms a ramp (18) that is oblique to the axial direction, to elastically deform the locking member (11, 11') radially by means of a lever effect when the ring (5, 5') is pulled axially in the direction of insertion of the male end piece (6) into the female end piece (2, 2') so as to free the male end piece (6) from the female end piece (2, 2').
