Quick connect??

I'm new to tractors. Could anyone explain what a quick connect u-joint looks like/and how it works?
I'm looking at a King Kutter 5' rotoray mower. Of course it comes with the PTO drive shaft to run the mower gear drive. One U-joint end attaches to the mower gear box with a bolt (also a shear pin in there somewhere). The other end connects to the PTO spline on the tractor and is secured with either (I have seen two styles) a spring loaded push pin or a spring loaded rotating collar (that activates the pin) to hold the shaft and u-joint on to the PTO. Are both of these considered quick connect? Or are these just the regular methods of securing the drive shaft to the PTO spline? What is the purpose of quick connect? Should I look for a rotoray mower that has it? Or, do the ones described above work just as well?? Many thanks!!

I have a couple old items that connect to a pto with a pin (um, bent nail) and a bolt that clamps it on the pto.

The 2 systems you describe are the good ones I know of, I suspect the collar thing you describe is considered quick-connect, but I actually prefer the single spring pin.

Either is just fine.
