Product Overview

The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-Fit x MNPT Adapter allows you to make a connection to 1/2 in. pipe using a push-fit connection and gives you a 1/2 in. Male 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.

I need to use a screw on tub spout - copper stub doesn't have threaded end. Can I use this fitting to get the job done? Will the fitting spin when I screw on the spout, or does it take more force to spin the fitting on the pipe than to screw the spout on the threads?

Answer: 
Hi Mike,
SharkBite fittings will spin after installation. That being said, it is not recommended to use a SharkBite fitting for tub spout installations.
A copper sweat adapter will be the better option for this scenario. Thanks for your interest in our products.

Answer: 
Hi,
Yes, this fitting works with 1/2" Copper, PEX, and CPVC. If the line to your shut off is one of these pipe types, simply push the fitting onto the pipe and thread your new shut off onto the fitting.
Thanks for your interest in our products.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved me tons of work We were setting up for a summer birthday water slide party with about 60-70 guests and it never fails the back main spigot on our house cracked. Well the connection needed to be cut off and what I though was solder a new copper fitting on. This all happened about 9:30 at night, so not too many options to get the thing fixed. I drive down to HD and notice these Sharkbite adapters, well thought its worth a shot. I hacked off the old fitting, sanded it clean, and pushed on the sharkbite connector. Attached a new spigot with a female coupling and turned on the water. Walking back from the valve, I was expecting some leakage, but turn the corner and not even a sweat from the connection. This thing went on in a few minutes work and seems to working great. This really saved me from having to learn to solder copper joints and go one with our party the next day. We will have to see how durable it is as time and seasons pass by. August 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not good for my project Seems like a super concept, however my problem was that the shower/tub trim kit I'd purchased was supposed to have come with a slip fit tub spout and it ended up having a threaded spout, which I didn't find out until every other component had already been installed. After contacting the manufacturer, was told it was a print error on the packaging and that they don't make that model in a slip fit. I don't have the equipment to sweat on a male fitting and didn't want to buy it all or hire a plumber to do it, as I'd already spent more on the trim kit than I'd budgeted for on a spare bath, so the helpful HD staff assured me this would be a simple, viable solution. Not so much. I also bought a tubing cutter and the tool to remove the Sharkbite and quickly found that the Sharkbite spins at the press-on end so the tub spout NEVER gets tight to the wall....this also prevents the fitting from tightening down enough seal, so water pours out the back of the spout. I took it off and used pliers to thread this into the tub spout as tight as I could get it, then pushed it onto the pipe and though it still spun readily, it at least wasn't spurting water out where the spout meets the wall...that is until I engaged the diverter, and unfortunately it just couldn't tolerate the increase in pressure and now this time it just spun instead of unscrewing, so took a bit of work to get it off again. Tried both with and without thread tape and nothing worked. Waste of a whole lot of time, multiple trips to the store 30 miles away, and even more money that I shouldn't have had to spend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only brand to buy These shark bites are great, don't buy the copper ones. April 28, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not so hot Would have worked maybe if connection above had not been trouble, but once it had pressure twisting on it , it failed October 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No leaks, no soldering 5 second to install. Easy to install, push twist and you are done, install can be reversed with a removal tool. December 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best product very easy to install and very good product no need to weld any thing March 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 20 Second Installation While replacing a washer in a leaky outdoor spigot, I cracked the faucet handle. In trying to remove the spigot, I broke the connection between the spigot and the copper water line. Googled how to repair this and stumbled on SharkBite couplings. Was able to purchase the SharkBite connection I need locally. Had to remove stucco around pipe to access it as it was flush to the exterior wall. Was able to use hacksaw to square off end of pipe and a Dremel bit to sand the edges smooth. Wrapped spigot connection threads with teflon type tape, inserted coupler over copper pipe, attached spigot to coupler, closed spigot to check for leaks. Not a single drop of water. No leaks when turned faucet on with hose attached to it. While I am not looking forward to future plumbing repairs using SharkBite connectors will speed things up considerably. January 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! Easy to install. Saved a ton of time. I recommend Shark bite products. March 25, 2015
