    Would get different to them, they way to big and heavy to use, there is smaller and lighter ones out there that will be better!

    Look like rectus 26 from the van mount plate adapted to fit hose making em heavier than normal could be wrong though if they are rectus try eBay for rectus 26 or 21 with hose connection male to suit internal of hose eg 8mm or 12.5 can't tell from photo if they are rectus will say on the silver ring bit on the pull back section of the connector

    For example of van mount plate check out brodex site for spare parts to compare defo cheaper on eBay

    Think possibly your connector the rusty bit on the end will have a female thread that may separate from the adaption if you wanted to buy just that bit check thread sizes though as a few different thread sizes

    The ends on the pictures are the female type to stop water flowin out when the male connector from the pole hose is disconnected obviously the same type of connectors are required the pole hose will self drain if fitted with a male connector worth noting when putting pole in van as water will appear on the storage area hence why people paint vans with waterproof paint/ sealer

    Oh right, couldn't you change to the brass hozelock connections? be cheaper and easier to get hold of.
