My "answer" starts with one of my favorite Dirty Harry lines. "Do you feel lucky?" Then it turns into "maybe."
Not a real positive start, eh?
The valve's tubing end has a threaded collar #which you can unscrew#, followed by an o-ring #the sealing mechanism#, then a beveled toothed washer with very sharp teeth, teeth pointing toward the outlet end of the valve. If one imagines shoving the tubing into the valve assembly, the end of the tubing passes through the washer and teeth like fluid moving through a funnel. The tube stops with the teeth about 5 mm from the tube end. The idea is, the tube will slide in, but if one tries to pull it back out, the sharp teeth dig into the material, stopping it from coming back out. One can ONLY pull it out if the teeth did not dig into the material. If you just assembled it, you have a chance. After some time passes, with a little expansion and contraction, I suspect the teeth will become set into the material.
My project had four ends with these valves, and I was using PEX. For PEX the valve kit includes a little plastic sleeve that is supposed to slide into the open end before the valve goes on - it fits inside the tubing, and stiffens the end. My first two valves I installed without the sleeves, then I discovered my error. I decided to back up and fix it.
The first one I unscrewed the collar. One can remove the valve body, and now one can see the washer, the o-ring and the collar, stuck on the end of the tube. I very gently worked at the washer, and found it had not really dug into the PEX. I was able to remove it, then reassemble the valve and fitting. Buoyed by my success, it tugged gently on the other tube and valve, and it came right off. That was several months ago, and my gut feeling is NONE of them would come apart now.
One can always unscrew the collar, and if one was forced by circumstance to repair the connection, I suspect one could cut the toothed washer and remove it, the trick being to remove it with minimal damage to the tubing surface. The manufacturer does not sell a repair kit, but as inexpensive as the valves are, just buy another one and install it!
My project, by the way, works perfectly and doesn't leak a drop! I highly recommend these valves.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase These hose bib valves slip right over the square cut end of the PEX piping I was using, and don't leak a drop. I was even able to remove one, and reinstall it, which one should not do, but I made a mistake and had to take it off. No worries, it still slipped on and sealed completely. The manufacturer even offered to replace any valve I had a trouble with - I had no trouble with any of them. Good product, and very inexpensive. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Now I'm a plumber Removed a 45 year old faucet and snapped this baby on with ease. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good after a month Installed 2 on pex for washing machine connection in a rental. I needed to remove 1 to change the length on the pex, and it slid right off without a tool which concerns me. It has stayed on for a month, but I suspect if it had any significant pressure it might pull right off, or even the water pressure could blow it off..... April 5, 2016
