Rated 1 out of 5Â by Keepitsimplestupid Warning ! Do not use!
Warning! Unless you are looking for a project down the road, don't use these. I bought four of them and learned the hard way that they corrode very quickly where the threads make contact with hose bib, nozzle, etc., eventually making it impossible to remove, no matter how much WD-40 you use. They are cheap aluminum fittings colored to look like brass. Aluminum presents a greater risk of galvanic corrosion than most other materials. This means that where it comes into contact with other metals it corrodes quickly, and the result is the threads become permanently stuck together. So unless you are handy with tools and want to waste the time cutting away and knocking the old threads off with a chisel, hopefully not damaging your hose bib, nozzle, or other fitting in the process, then go with REAL brass (but these seem to be getting harder to find at home depot) or plastic. I've attached a picture of the aftermath.

Works fine, but the brass color scratches off to reveal that it is really aluminum, which is not as strong and the threads wear down much quicker.

You would be better off to stay with brass or plastic. Will corrode to anything you attach it to

NOT Brass. Heavy duty not. Have to use wrenches to take apart hoses using these parts. They corrode and lock together. Junk in the guise of quality.
