    Bayonet connection simply means one where you turn it through a small angle to engage/disengage rather than just pushing in on/off or screwing it in.

    It doesn't really tell you enough to know what the connector is.

    Do you have some idea of how these bayonet connection were employed in transferring liquid helium (in helium flow cryostats)..
