Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Netta So far it works fine
Read the reviews and still decided to give it a try. I cut the hose and attached the the piece with no problem, then went out and watered my plants - no leaks. Hopefully it will last a while.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarpeCervidae Just installed tonight, no leaks - DISAGREE with both bad reviews here.
Normally I don't write product reviews, but after buying a couple of these and installing one tonight on the nozzle end of my Neverkink heavy duty hose, it felt like I should help give this product more credit.
Yes, it is plastic, and that made me wonder upon purchasing, but saving a few bucks seemed worth the try, and especially if I could get refunded if it was lousy, and go for metal instead. I tried it tonight, and admittedly my first attempt put the hose too tight & against the collar before the thread, so I re-cut, and backed it off a bit so the screw-on two-piece clamp could fit, and I verified it works just fine! I frankly have a feeling that the two bad reviews preceding my review are the fault of the user and not the product. Again, probably just needs to be in the right spot since - as it states - it accomodates more than just one hose diameter.
Hope this helps in your decision!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BIGSLICK Avoid this
Will not fit into my 5/8 hose ... even after warming it in boiling water (AS RECOMMENDED ON OTHER ORBIT PRODUCTS). POOR DESIGN ... AVOID.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve PURE JUNK! Breaks when Tightening!
PURE JUNK! They can't be tightened properly around a hose. They LACK METAL NUTS for the screws to go into, so they easily strip through the plastic on the mating piece and fall apart!. Buy the metal one with metal band clamps.
