Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ks4egray Works initially, but over time corrodes
I thought these were great until I let one sit for about a year connected to my hose. The aluminum in this welded itself to my garden hose. I had to put it in a vise and use a pair of 18" channel locks to get the hose to come loose. This, of course, destroyed the aluminum fitting, and nearly damaged my hose coupling beyond repair. There was significant corrosion in between the adapter and hose coupling from the aluminum. If these were made in brass, they would be great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jmb Works Great. No leaks when connected.
Quick connect makes changing hose attachments a breeze. No leaks when attached. Only down side is a bit over priced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PerryR Why did I wait so long
This simple hose attachment has saved me countless frustrating moments of disconnecting my water-hose and reattaching it to something else. Just put a male attachment to each of your nozzles, pressure washers and sprinkler systems and immediately you live longer by reducing the level of frustration in your life. I wish everything was as simple.

I fitted several of these to outside taps and hose accessories. Now changing tools is very quick, easy and drip free.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Winston ok but not great
I was excited to purchase the metal disconnects so that I did not have to keep unscrewing my watering wand, spray nozzle, and my osculating sprinkler. I added the disconnects to my sprinkler and my watering wand and found that they work with ease and I do not have to shut the water off every time I want to switch a tool.
The problem that I have come across is that they are not always water tight. I have found because of the sloppiness of the connection, sometimes water does leak from the connectors. The water is not leaking bad enough for me to return the connectors just yet, but if they do continue leaking, I will be returning them.
All in all, I am happy with the convenience of the connectors but I am unhappy that they leak.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yoked2000 Better than the last one
It appears over the years the quality of this type of item has dropped dramatically no matter where you get them. They used to be solid and machined well and durable.
They are now made out of a much cheaper material that needs to be replaced much more often. At least the new ones I picked up don't leak like the previous ones did. Time will tell how long until the inside edge gets pitted again and begins to leak once again.
I recommend it just becaus there aren't really any better ones at either of the big box stores that are any better. I found that mixing from different stores doesn't work very well either.
