Description


A red anodized Apollo space suit connector and matching plug made for Apollo suit manufacturer International Latex Corporation by Airlock, Inc. The ‘elbow’ connector, measuring 3 x 2.25, would have been used to connect the Apollo suit to the Primary Life Support System (PLSS) hose, and the plug, 1.5″ in diameter and 1.25″ tall, would be used to seal the suit pass-through oxygen ports for protection and for leak-testing purposes. In overall fine condition. These parts have been authenticated by Bill Ayrey, company historian at ILC Dover, the manufacturer of the Apollo, Shuttle, and Space Station suits, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from him.
