I picked one of those up from my local ag dealer the other day (it was on the counter and looked good!) but I haven't used it yet. Apparently they can be hard to undo if they are really pressurised onto the nipple - I guess I'll find out soon enough and report back!

Graham has beaten me to it with a reply, I got mine off eBay , but all the same in reality

It's only a new sealing socket and a set of jaws, I actually re-used my old jaws as they seemed to fit my coupler better, possibly as mine was a fairly old coupler? The new ones went in but didn't feel right, if you know what I mean.

Looks a lot of money for what you get in the packet, but if you love the G coupler then it's a small price to pay to get one back to full health
