Asked by: LOBO3000
if the hole is near the end and you won't have to cut off too much, you can get an Orbit Model # 27943 for the male end or Model # 27944 for the female end or they have a Orbit Model # 27990 which is a splicer type fitting to make repairs in the middle of the hose. with any of these, you cut the hose off and slide the hose clamp over the hose and slide the barbed fitting into the hose and tighten the clamp up snugly.

5/8 in. Male Metal Mender is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long term issues I was sorry to see the metal hose end menders changed from a decent metal fitting to an anodized (?) aluminum. I repaired several damaged hose ends with these last season (2012). The installation was straight forward, although I was not a fan of the dangling metal end on the hose clamp used to secure the replacement end. They worked. This season, I found the replacement hose end threads were oxidized/corroded and were very difficult to join. Had to use pliers and ended up damaging an original end trying to screw on a replacement end. Give me a brass fitting any day. They last for years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from genuine Aluminum Guaranteed to corrode to anything you attach it to. Better to stay with brass or plastic

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother The picture makes the item to appear to be brass, It isn't. Do not like the hose clamp, sharp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Brass as described... Warning: This mender is no longer made of Brass as described in the product specifications. It is a 2 piece cast material. It does come with a stainless hose clamp. This is a mediocre repair kit at best, but size and function will work in a pinch. I would recommend that Home Depot revises the product description AND picture ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy a separate 3/8 to 7/8 in clamp and you are set Based on various reviews I did not trust the clamp that came with the hose-end mender. I bought my own clamp that is a little smaller (3/8 to 7/8 in) so I could really tighten it down. I'v e been using it for days - no leaking, not a drop. A very cheap alternative to a new hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & Easy I needed to replace the handle on my hose but it was rusted on. I had to cut the hose and used this with the Quick Connect Faucet End Connector and a Faucet Adapter. The worker at HD showed me how to install it and it took less than one minute. Very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as described I bought these to basically make a male to male hose to connect 2 hoses together, don't ask. they worked great. a great way to fix a bad hose end. I highly recommend.
