Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will Garden Hose shut-off Coupling
The shut-off coupling fits my circumstance for use in the garden in conjunction with several soaker hoses. It allow me to cut off the water supply and re-attach to a soaker hose without walking 150 feet to the main shut-off. Perfect addition to my garden watering system.

Shut off valve knob breaks off very easily. Should have been made out of metal instead of plastic. This is really a piece of garbage..

The coupling serves as a quick shut-off for my lawn sprinkler's connection to the hose. I use it regularly.

This shut-off is very helpfull. No more walking back to the hose bib to shut off the water between use while working. I prefer this to the plastic version.

Didn't last a month, already broken. Just like this website. Impossible to write review.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dasvin Steer clear of using....cannot take cold...will split if temps drop
Had this connected to my outside spigot. Temps dropped and the part failed (just under a year). Walls around the ball split and water poured out for what looks like a day or so. Contacted Orbit Customer Service and they were all nice about listening to my problem. Shipped them the failed valve and got a letter saying they are not liable for a failure from freezing. Website has no warnings about removing the part if temps are freezing. It is advertised as an outdoor valve and that is it. The 30+ year old brass spigot is still there and has never split but this did. Walls are very thin. Part is plated so walls are even thinner. Anyway despite the fact that there are no freeze warnings, Orbit has denied my request to pay for the water that I lost and is now short in responses and seems not to want to hear anything on the matter. Steer clear. Part is cheaply made. Will continue to try to recuperate the water cost. Am an engineer and can definitely say the part is not made to last and will not take any sort of freezing. Had I seen any verbiage stating or even implying this, would not have purchased.

I bought two of those hoses that collapse when they are empty and weigh next to nothing. They're great except for moving around the yard quickly and without effort. Only problem is that all the fittings are plastic. The open/close handle broke off the first time I tried to use it. I went to Home Deport for a (plastic) replacement, but the only one available was made of metal (zinc). It cost quite a bit more than I had planned to pay (25% of the original hose with the plastic coupling), but it makes my hose fully functional again, and it will out-live the hose!

I am very satisfied, we replaced a leaky shutoff. This looks nice, doesn't leak, and is very easy to operate.
