Answer: 
Hi,
The rings for polybutylene have a different outside diameter. The crimp rings for both sides of this transition fitting have the same outside diameter. These crimp rings should be installed using a PEX/Barb Crimp Tool. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-and-3-4-in-Dual-PEX-Copper-Crimp-Ring-Tool-23251/202270489

Answer: 
Hi Bernie,
Crimp rings can only be used with PEX pipe and barb fittings. If you need to connect polybutylene to copper, you can use a SharkBite polybutylene transition coupling and simply push the pipe into the fitting (no tools required.) http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Brass-Push-to-Connect-Polybutylene-Conversion-Coupling-U4008LFA/202270632?keyword=u4008lfa

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed for my old PB pipe repair I had a cracked t-fiting on some older 1/2 BOW super-flex PB, since I couldn't find a replacement T, I used these transitions to put in PEX. I used 3 of these guys to do the transitions to the PEX, so I could use a Shark Bite T. I did the crimps on PB and the PEX using the Shark Bite crimper with no issues. All working great with no leaks so far. September 21, 2015
