Customer Questions & Answers

is this male repair for a 3/4 inch I.D. rubber hose

I am having a hard time finding a male repair for my 3/4 inch ID garden hose that fits tight
Asked by: s100457
Yes the only one that is available but I would NOT RECOMMEND it due to, 3/4" inside diameter is too large of a hose for this to fit properly. It will buckle the hose and continue to leak even though it says 5/8" to 3/4" the fitting best fits 5/8 ID (inside diameter) hose. NOTE the Made IN CHINA products are not recommended especially the metal ones.

Male Repair Mender is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No 3/4" hoses available in stores Of all the garden hoses available in the store there is only 1, 3/4", and that's the pocket hose that bursts in 3 weeks or less, so you'll never need to repair it. The majority of hoses in the store are 5/8", yet there no repair ends available for them. Just stamping 5/8" -3/4" on them does not make them fit!!! Come on HD give us the tools we need for the job we're doing!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible design flaw. This hose mender has a terrible design. Beware. Instead of a nut and bolt assembly that connects that two part gray metal clamp body together, you have a bolt going into a threaded hole in one side of the gray metal clamp body. The gray metal clamp body is made of cheaper weaker metal. So guess what happens if you try to tighten down on a hose end when fixing your garden hose. Well, that threaded hole strips and you are left with a hose mender that can't tighten. You are better off with the hose mender that uses the old fashion worm drive hose clamp. Not this garbage, that would of probably worked if it used an embedded steel nut instead of a threaded hole. The steel nut would of held up better in my opinion since the metal is not as weak as the gray metal clamp body. Just useless if you are repairing a hose whose outside diameter (wall thickness) is bigger that typical wall thickness of garden hose

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money this is junk It won't unscrew and it leaks. I agree it is better to buy a new hose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaks I bought this product to replace on a hose that was accidentally cut off, I slid the hose all the way up onto the adapter and tightened it as tight as it would go and turned the water on. the hose leaked at the adapter like a sieve at the adapter connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Quality part. Well worth it. Much better then the plastic kind and Only $1.00 more. I had to order online and have shipped to store, but it was worth it being the plastic one the store stocks and I had purchased did not hold up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than plastic models I bought this after trying to use the plastic ones. It is much tougher and you can actually tighten it to the point that it does not leak.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not the best not the worst This product consists of a hose barb with a split metal shell around it. The problems with this desigh are 1) there is no clamping on the hose on the sides where the split in the shell is and 2) it only works at all if the hose O.D. is big enough but not to big. Also, there is a problem with the construction. The shells are made of pot metal and are held together with self tappin screws. Not the best idea as the metal is weak and the screws do not engage smoothly. On the other havd they are very inexpensive and, if they fail, you can replace the metal shell with a hose clamp and it will then work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not seal on 5/8" garden hose I have tried to use this product twice and wasted my time both times. I have had the same experience of another reviewer -- it will not clamp down tight enough to seal on an average-duty 5/8" garden hose. It may work better on a heavy-duty hose. That is, if you have a hose with a thick enough wall, it may clamp down tight enough. Otherwise, you might as well get the black tape out to make up the difference. Quality seems ok, and easy to install, but VERY POOR DESIGN!!!
