Can an air chuck be used as a quick release?

I bought a tire inflator/air compressor with a digital readout for home use. It's pretty slick--you dial in the pressure you want and hit a button and it stops when it reaches that pressure.

The hose has an annoying screw-on fitting like this:


But I'd much prefer the "snap to lock" adapter of tire pumps from yesteryear or even the squeeze adapters that gas stations have. I'm letting several pounds of pressure out as I attempt to unscrew the adapter each time.

I'm wondering: can I get an air chuck (specifically this) and use it as a sort of "quick release"? How does the chuck depress the plunger in the valve?
