Default Camlocks on an R/O?

I just finished my building my R/O, I used 1/2" stainless camlocks on both pumps in/out and 3 camlocks on all 3 orifices of the membrane. I'm wondering if they will hold the pressure and not leak. I have two that are not perfectly straight as the pex is putting pressure on them slightly. I was one fitting short so I haven't checked for leaks yet.

I would see the chart below

PT Couplings – Cam Couplings – Camlock Coupler

I don't know what pressure your looking at with your RO but Mine has braided SS with high pressure fittings.

If that's the case then I would warm the Pex up with a hair dryer to relax the side torque and get the fittings aligned. Heat wont hurt it that's how they fix kinks.

An update on the camlocks................They worked great.
I have my membrane with camlocks on all 3 ports so I can take it off in seconds. I also put camlocks on both the feed pump and high pressure pump. I wired the low pressure shut off to a receptacle so I just plug the feed pump into that and if I need the pump someplace else I can have it off in 10 seconds.
