Note that the brass fittings on your PEX pipe MUST also be Sharkbite barbed fittings -- for the stainless barb clamp rings and the copper crimp rings.

I hope this clarifies things!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by take a bite out of time In the past I have only had a need to crimp one or two rings on a project. My current project has me adding a bathroom and laundry as well as two outside spigots off of the main water line. In the past, I used a manual crimping tool that you used with a pair of pliers which meant many "redo's" if the clamp slipped. This tool is awesome. Every crimp was perfect and only took seconds. As a DYIer, this is well worth the cost, knowing it will sit on a shelf for the next 2-3 years till I need it again. The only con was that it does not work will in small spaces, such as a crawl space under a 1940's era house. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes it too easy! I had to make two new water supply connections for an outdoor shower and when I was done less than 5 minutes later I thought I must have missed something! This crimp tool for pex tubing and copper rings makes plumbing connections almost too easy. The leverage of the handles is enough to not need very much strength to crimp the ring. One squeeze and you're done. Plus it includes a gauge first to make sure that the ring crimped enough to prevent leaks but then not too much as to damage a fitting. All in all a great investment that will save you time and money! May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plumbing done easy I was working on fixing up an old house sweating pipe the old fashion way. My father-in-law built a new house and turned me on to pex. There are no elbows or sweating some type of union at each bend. This tool allows you to attach fixtures or any type of connection you need to make to the pipe. Cut the pipe slip it on to the fixture and crimp your ring and done. I have had 100% success with this tool. Very consistent results and with the supplied gauge to make sure the tool is still set properly ensures the rings are set correctly, but I have never had to adjust the tool out of the box, still right where it needs to be a year and a half later. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Works very easy but cost a little high for some home owners but will last for ever for a home owner. You could get away with out it but you would have to buy the shark bite compression fittings which cost much more so either way you will pay which is why I just went ahead and got the tool. Hope I never need it again but when houses start to get older or you want to update a bathroom or something it will come in handy. March 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for tight 1/2" connections Unless it was for a fitting along a long section of pipe, I couldn't use the 3/4" anywhere because of space restrictions. However, the 1/2" part is perfect for every tightly-spaced connection I've encountered thus far. Basically, I needed this guy plus a more expensive adjustable model to complete a full house re-plumb. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple with Professional Results Very simple and great results. Recommend watching Sharkbite videos to familiarize your self with the system. After initial learning curve, jobs will go very quickly. I debated pex roll vs straight and went with straight its easier to manage and looks better in my opinion. December 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best crimping tool for PEX rings -- don't bother with the cheap stuff! After years of remodeling work, I haven't done any PEX installs -- and this week was the time. Although the Sharkbite 'push in' fittings are very easy to work with, I wanted to use the 'pro' copper crimp rings for this job. I only needed to crimp a few short lengths of PEX, so I bought one of the $20 'pocket' crimping tools that you are supposed to use with Vise Grip or Channel Lock pliers. I should have known better. So I drove back to Home Depot and purchased this Sharkbite crimping tool for $60. After one pass it was clear why the 'pocket' version would not work. The PEX copper rings need to be crimped securely, no ifs or maybes. This is a great tool that is easy to use. If you are working with PEX, buy this to crimp your connections. Don't waste your money on a "less expensive" option, like I did. Mark September 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable crimps each time, but don't forget to use the "Go" No Go " gauge I went with the copper compression crimp system instead the clamp method because one review said the fitting was able to turn afterward even though it didn't leak so I erred to the safe side as far as I'm concerned. I completed replacing the original galvanized H&C water lines with this crimper and after double checking the crimps with the supplied "Go", "No Go" gauge I found several copper rings were not crimped. Job completed with no leaks. As some suggest, some crimps should be made ahead of others if you have space limitations when opening the tool to make a crimp because it needs space to operate. I did all my dead work first before shutting off the water supply to limit the shutdown time. Also, since using the copper rings instead of push in fittings I saved some big bucks. September 1, 2015
