Customer Reviews

5/8 in. Metal Male Mender is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No-Brainer Cut off the damaged end of your garden hose by 2" or so and use a hacksaw, serrated kitchen knife (like you can buy at the Dollar Stores) or heavy duty shears (which most folks don't have in their inventory of tools). Just try to make the cut as straight as possible. It takes some effort (as it should) to force it into the hose end. Soapy water may make it easier for some folks. If you can just get into the habit of removing the female end from the water sillcock on your home and anything attached to the male end at the end of the watering season each year you'll probably never have the need for another hose repair fitting again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Metal Male Mender I tried the plastic one and they always seems I strip the threads put the sprayer on and off. So I decided to go with the brass and glad I did. Have not had any issue with it taking the sprayer off and on. I had no issues it leaking around the band where it tightens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as pictured but works The picture looks like cast brass ones previously purchased but there are wavey ridges on the bard and threads that suggest dipping of stamped soft metal in yet a softer metal coating. They do not leak when first installed. Only had them a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly I left a nozzle on the male end of my hose in my garage last winter. I wanted to remove the nozzle to connect the male end of my hose to my pressure washer. The nozzle had been connected without being removed for so long that it was impossible for me remove it from the hose. Rather than purchasing a new hose, I cut about an inch of the hose from the end that included the nozzle and installed one of these. The cutting of the hose and installing of this mender took less than five minutes and was completed using only a knife and screwdriver. The new male end of the hose connected perfectly to my pressure washer with no leaking whatsoever. Some of the other reviews expressed concern over this mender not being brass but, at less than $4, it's a simple fix to an issue similar to the one I was having.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No leaks now! I have a hose which leaked at the end connector. Rather than buying a new hose, I decided to try one of these. I didn't expect complete sealing under pressure, but wanted to reduce the amount of water being sprayed on my shoes. Installation was simple. I used 2 clamps; the one they gave me and one extra I had lying around. Tightened them up with a nut driver for extra tightness. Now my hose does not leak at all, which is better than I expected. I am going to buy 2 more of these for other hoses I have with pinhole leaks near the ends. Cheaper than buying a new hose! Highly recommended.
