Answer: 
They are stiff; sometimes stiffer than other times. I'm not sure what makes the difference. Be careful though, if you get too heavy handy, the levers will break.

I didn't have much of a problem. They are a little sticky but remember turn counterclockwise to open when facing valve and clockwise to turn off.

Answer: 
That was my main complaint also. They are very stiff due to their size. If they were bigger it would create ease in the ball valve. The best thing you can do to make somewhat easier is lubricate with vaseline. Make sure you lubricate inside and out.

They are easy to move, but the two left ones move in one direction the two right ones move the other way. So it's just getting use to the movement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4 Way shut off works perfect I used this as part of my watering system for my Orchid Arbors. I needed at least 3 shutoffs for the multiple hose uses. One is hooked up to the automatic orchid system, on is used for hand watering and the third is used should I need to fill the pool June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Tool for the Job I bought this splitter because I have a large side yard, as well as a back yard...but only one faucet. So I am using this to run a short 6' hose to the back yard, that has it's own on/off valve. Then, i have a regular hose connected for the side yard. I plan to use the two unused splitter nozzles in the photo to run drip lines to the plants and hedges in the side yard as well. It is very high quality, and was easy to install. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great time saver. This saves me hours of attaching hoses and is an excellently made connector. I have a large yard and garden and without this I (a recent widow) would be doing nothing but disconnecting and reconnecting all day. Great quality! Great price! Easy to connect. You an use from one to four hoses all at one! May 31, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works OK for awhile This particular splitter is better than other brands, but I don't find that any of them last more than a year. Sometimes less. Actually, this one is a replacement for one (same brand) that I bought less than 6 months ago. Not sure why hose splitters lack durability, but they do - it's appears to be the nature of the beast. Actually, the 4 way splitter holds up slightly better than 2 way splitters. October 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke as soon as I put it on I installed this and attached my hose to it, gave the hose a light tug and it broke off in the middle of metal.I'm going to look for something sturdier. September 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Only a one year lifespan. This was the only brand we found in the local store. We used it to replace the same brand after it broke. All told it lasted a little less than a year. So if the price is worth a years worth of use then go for it. If they had another brand in the store I probably would have gone that route though. The threading portion is connected rather poorly in my opinion. When trying to remove the hose the threading came with it. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you ever think you want to remove a hose from it again, then walk away. This is the second one of these I bought. The first one broke after less than a year, but it looked like just one of "those things". The second one I got lasted longer, but I wanted to move hoses around after a few months, but the manifold hose bibs are themselves threaded in with a very short connector of their own, and they unscrew before your hose does, rendering this thing useless, and also now you have to try to get their odd little connectors out of your hose when all they have is about 1/8" sticking up. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, I guess. But there won't be a third time. November 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4- way hose connection Excellent quality. The valves work smoothly and shut off completely. September 13, 2016
