Hydraulic connectors

I have Arthritis in my hands and have a hard time connecting and disconnecting the hydraulic lines.

Does JD or anyone else make an adapter kit that changes the angle of the connectors?

And remember to relieve the pressure in the lines before attempting to connect them. Do this by moving the joystick left, right, up, down after shutting the tractor off.
And ideally also relieve pressure that has built up while sitting in the loader with either a Waite tool (available from or the messy put a rag over the tip and push against a loader mast or similar. Sometimes that pressure in the loader can make it almost impossible to connect back to the tractor.
