Product Overview

The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-Fit x FNPT Adapter allows you to make a connection to 1/2 in. pipe using a push-fit connection and then gives you a 1/2 in. Female NPT Adapter on the opposite end. SharkBite fittings are the easiest way to join copper, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can it be used to connect to a PVC pipe or does it have to be CPVC?

Asked by: Waterdog
sharkbite fittings work on copper, pex and cpvc only because they grip the outside diameter of the pipe.

Can this be used with galvanized male fittings or directly on galvanized pipe that is threaded?

Asked by: plumberquestions123
Yes, it can be used on 1/2 in. galvanized pipe that is threaded. The fit from female end of this product to male end of galvanized pipe will be perfect (assuming you use plumber's tape correctly).

Work For Hose Bib?

I need to install a new hose bib on my 3/4" copper pipe. My current hose bib is not a standard length. Can I buy a new 3/4" frost free hose bib, attach this fitting to the threaded male end of the hose bib and then attach the shark bite slip on side it to my existing 3/4" copper pipe?

Just to clarify...

Both ends of this adapter are meant to fit 1/2 in? Meaning that the push end will fit a 1/2" pex pipe and the brass female adapter will receive a 1/2" male threaded fitting, correct?

1/2 in. Brass Push-to-Connect x Female Pipe Thread Adapter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spinning limits range of applications I bought an elbow, a female connector, and a male connector to replace a tub stubout that had disconnected at the solder joint in the wall. All went well with the SharkBite connectors until I tried to screw on the faucet. Because the copper tubing can spin there was no way to tighten the faucet. I now have to replace two of the connectors with others that do not spin. I am not looking forward to removing the sharkbit connectors--they are very difficult to remove even with the removal tool, and with their location in the wall it is very difficult to get the appropriate leverage on the tool. SharkBite needs to a better job warning people about applications. They tout the spinning as a feature, which it certainly can be in some applications--but in other applications it renders these connectors useless. On the positive side the connectors did not leak at all and I will use them in the future when I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievably easy to use instant no leak connection. used on water heater replacement . cut old copper lines, pushed on connector, attached threaded hose to water heater.... done. no leaks, no problems . def will use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I rave about the the smaller SharBite connectors and now I will do the same for the new 2X connectors. The design is even better than the small ones and the product feels very solid. I used it to tie into a 1 1/2 inch drain line that was ran through a concrete wall. The connection is solid and leak free. Definitely worth the cost. It saved me on both time and materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plumbing has never been so much fun! My husband and I recently purchased a cabin that was built back in the 1940's, it needed a total gut job down to the studs! Needless to say, that included plumbing. We received several estimates over $2500 to replumb it. We have done traditional plumbing before and knew we could do it ourselves...but it's such a pain! After speaking with an amazing Home Depot Rep about the SharkBite system, we decided to give it a try. It took us less than an hour to replumb the entire bathroom, and another 20 minutes to tie in the kitchen! And it was fun! The initial investment seems expensive, but compared to traditional copper, plus the added expense of a plumber, this was worth it's weight in gold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and it works Don't waste your money getting copper if you need a fitting to do the job right. I bought brass fittings made by Shark Bite and is simply the best. I learned the hard way. I just installed a water heater in my house and used copper fittings from another manufactures, Blue Hawk I believe. It was such a waste of money and mainly time. No matter what sealant I applied, it leaked. Such a frustrating experience. I ended up spending more more on those other fitting. That when I bought Shark Bite and installed their copper fittings and this particular one made out of brass. Guess what...not a single sign of moist. I recommend this fitting and brand. Don't use capper where it need to be tight. The threads will no hold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing short of miraculous I was replacing a 4 way shower diverter and did not want to solder. I cut the 1/2 copper pipes square, de-burred them with the sharkbite tool, added Teflon tape to the threads and popped them on. It was a tight spot, so had to modify the de-burr tool slightly so that it would rotate in the limited space (I cut the tool leaving just the 1/2 inch end). One challenge was that the hot and cold pipes (left and right) were fixed, so there was no room to get the last sharkbite connection on (see pic). No worries, sharkbite has a two inch slip coupling that did the job. I cut out a 3 inch section of pipe, shortened this to 2 inches and put this on the non-slip end of the slip coupler and slipped it on which left enough space to get the last connector in. Attached the last sharkbite to other end of my 2" pipe on the slip connector, pulled it onto the cold water thread with the tool provided and tightened. Voilà! Before I turned on the water to test the pressure I was doubtful it would hold. The connectors spin on the pipe when you tighten them! What!? I was dumbfounded, not a drop! All connections were tight and the diverter is firmly held in place. Amazing product! A miracle indeed. We've used the shower for a week and still no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Expected Other fittings from Menards leaked when boiler water was below 100 degrees. These do not leak ever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, good product as long as you don't want a perfect seal This product does connect two pipes very easily. Unfortunately, the seal is not perfect. There is a steady drip from this product. I used this product to connect a new faucet (outdoors). All of my couplings and other screw-in pieces are great, no leaks. But there is a steady drip coming from this Sharkbite side of this product.
