In response to Re: Portable Dishwasher Causes Sink Sprayer to Blow
I belive this kind of collar connection is called a unicouple and is the industry standard for portable dishwashers. GE provides a PDF on one of its portable dishwashers, which informs the owner that "a sink spray attachment hose can bust if it is installed on the same sink as your dishwasher. We suggest you disconnect the sink spray attachment if your sink has one and plug the hole."
If found it hard to believe, but it seems you experienced this first hand. My condolences.
I downloaded the PDF from:

: I do not know what the faucet brand is, but the only sprayers I have ever seen fasten to the faucet with a screw thread. Yours may have been cut off and then slipped onto the fitting in order to keep from having to remove it.

: : Hope you can help. We just moved into a new house and the first time we went to use our portable dishwasher, the pressure caused by turning on the water with the hose line connected, caused the sink sprayer line to blow off and water went everywhere under the sink. After investigation, I noticed that this line just pushes onto the water line and there are no screw or clamps or anything. How would you suggest I fix this so the pressure doesn't cause this problem from reoccuring.

: : Thanks. Daniel
