    Default square-locked or square locked?

    I'm currently working on a glossary on hose technology (German, English). There is a metal hose type called "square locked hose" which I had expected to be written with a hyphen like similar compounds (square-edged, square-headed etc.). Most Google hits show the "unhyphenated" version.
    What would be grammatically correct and why?

    Cheers!

    It's not about grammar. It's about usage. Go with the flow.
