Another little trick, and I just learned this, is to buy TWO of the QD's for the crossover line and put a QD on each side. Then, when removing and replacing your tank, you don't have to fuss around trying to fish the crossover line over to the other side.
From my experience the QD not only needs the button pushed in, but some pressure needs to be exerted to push the two parts together before they will come apart.

Also, the pressure won't let the fuel out, they seal when opened. That is the point of them.
