The TVR-2160C Stack Quad Coupler is an adapter that was added in version 0.21 in KSP. The Quad Coupler is useful in some ways, tying with the TVR-400L Stack Quad-Adapter for the part with the most nodes. It is typically used to separate a single size 1 (1.25 meter) stack into four separate stacks. It supports fuel crossfeed.

The quadcoupler has non-standard (0.3 instead of 0.2) drag, meaning it should be placed behind the center of mass to ensure stability. Given its intended function, this can be problematic.
