(Screengrab)( Eli Manning and Odell Beckham aren't just one of the better quarterback-receiver combos in today's NFL.
As the Louisiana natives proved in a now-famous commercial for the league that aired during Super Bowl LII -- in which they re-created the iconic "leap" from the 1987 film "Dirty Dancing" as part of a faux touchdown celebration -- they've also got some impressive dance moves.
When the levers are rotated to the locked position, they pull the male end into the female socket, creating a tight seal up against a gasket.
The arms lock into position using an over-center arrangement, preventing accidental decoupling.
"We kept it as minimal as we possibly could," Miller said. They do the job and we take extra caution to make sure that they are safe and that it's not stressful on their bodies." But while the leap is easily the highlight of the ad, it's preceded by some pretty fancy footwork from both Manning and Beckham, courtesy of choreographer Stephanie Klemons, whose day job is associate choreographer on the Broadway smash "Hamilton." To live up to her standards, the two did something they're used to in their football lives: practice, practice, practice.
"We all definitely think they could do that without any help, but I think asking them to do it take after take would be a bit much." Mike Cicale, Miller's fellow creative director, added: "We want to make these guys' lives a little easier. According to Chris Brockman of "The Rich Eisen Show," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that to prepare for the spot -- which was filmed two weeks before the big game -- Manning hired a ballroom dance coach to get his hips swiveling just right.
Because there are no threads to become fouled, cam and groove couplings are popular in moderately dirty environments, such as septic tank pump trucks and chemical / fuel tanker trucks.
Because the groove is cut all the way around the male end, there is no specific alignment necessary to couple as there would be with threaded connectors, and there is no opportunity for cross-threading.
This results in an error-resistant, faster coupling operation.
A Cam and groove fitting can be used in a system where rapid filling of chemical drums takes place.
It can be used by factories that have needs of dye, paint and ink medium transfers.
