If you are using PVC, you can use standard PVC couplers as a great quick disconnect system. The flex hose slips in on one end, and make your own port for your tool using PVC pipe, and the coupler slips right over that. Look toward the bottom of this article for pictures of this: https://www.wwgoa.com/articles/projects/-d-o-g-simple-approach-for-dust-collection-ducting/

I use these on several tools in my shop and they really work great. If the flex doesn’t fit tightly in the couple you could tape it in place, but I haven’t had any problems, especially with the 6” flex.
