The idea is to replicate a quick disconnect fitting.
I have acouple of those but they are hard to find.
For correct measurements I could send one over, maybe to have it 3D scanned.
A picture is in attachment, total length of this connector is approx 2,5 cm.
Thanks for contacting me.

|Ceramics Lead Time sadly extended to 45 days :-( [message #102080] Fri, 31 October 2014 14:52 UTC
You may have noticed that for a long time ceramics has had significant production delays. Over the past year, we've increased the lead time from 13 days to 18 days, then to 22 days and we still have very late orders.
Despite our best efforts, the sad reality is that we have an unreliable ceramics vendor. Right now only 35% of orders are being shipped on time and this is unacceptable, both for us, and for your customers.
We've received news that our ceramics vendor is making changes over the next two months that will delay their production even further, and we are concerned about their ability to meet the already long lead times, especially over the holidays.
So today, regrettably, we are increasing the lead time on ceramics to 45 days (yes, that's 8-10 weeks long), which we hope is a more accurate estimate of how long it could take to fulfill your orders.
For now, we strongly recommend you don't order ceramics, and if you must, please put it in a separate order from other materials, so at least your other materials get shipped on time, and are not held up by the tardy ceramics.
While this is terrible news, you can be sure we have been investigating alternative solutions and hope to have some good news soon.
