As in what is the origin of the word camlock?
power to a steam hammer, for example, or an eccentric disc or other shape that produces a smooth reciprocating (back and forth) motion in the follower which is a lever making contact with the cam.
Cam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This definition plus the fact that it uses the cam action to engage a locking device are the reason it's called a "camlock".
Granted half of my students and other co-workers have yet to figure out what makes a twist lock a twist lock.
Do you want a Kleenex or some Coke to refresh you? If it isn't clear, maybe a Leko will help lighten it? I won't offer a Big Mac or Whopper to sooth your stomach. If you were in Canada I could offer you an Aspirin. In the USA aspirin has a become a generic word but is still a trademark in Canada.

First time I've ever heard "He-He"s and "She-She"s called "suicide connectors". Those wacky film gaffers! Now that I recall, I think I've heard Mole-Pins called suicide pins. In the olden days, I used Tweco welding connectors for feeder many times.
[user]avare[/user] is correct. The Crouse-Hinds (now Cooper) trademarked Cam-Lok E1016 series connectors are the industry standard. These. I like these "E1016-compatible" connectors better. The two-piece hard-shell attaches with four Phillips head screws, making covering oneself in EZ-Pull unnecessary, which I find best for after-work activities.
electrocute yourself on an powered Male Stage Pin now you are looking for connectors that come with a warning that they may kill you. Looking to write a new chapter in Dr. Doom's book on creative electrocution?
