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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, once calibrated First few crimps didn't fit in the Go gauge so I checked the instructions. It said it was factory calibrated, but it was wrong. I measured the distance between the handle marks and it was only 8". I had to search for an Allen wrench small enough, but once I found one (not included for some reason, I was able to make the adjustment to 8.5". All crimps for the entire day 3/4" and 1/2" were spot on afterwards. In some positions it is tough to get the leverage to get the crimp, but that's just how it goes no matter what tool you have. Just be sure to check the calibration before you start just so you don't waste time later. October 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value I checked around for this type of tool from other manufacturers and discovered this one was the least expensive by a significant margin. It's wonderful because it comes with a half inch and three-quarter inch crimp. I highly recommend this tool. the only difficulty I ran into was installing crimp fittings in tight spaces, but that is not the tools fault. Just make sure you plan ahead when installing crimp fittings in tight spaces. another pleasant surprise with this tool is that it comes with the nogo/go checking tool May 15, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for PEX plumbing This would be a 5 star product if it didn't need so much muscle to make the crimp. I did a major plumbing project with this crimper and every crimp was perfect. It did need more strength than I expected but the outcome was great. The other drawback to this tool is that it is a little difficult to maneuver in small (tight) spaces. Even with these minor issues I would buy it again if I was starting over. The alternative using the Stainless Steel clamping crimps is very costly for materials and personally the seal does not look to be as positive as using the crimp ring. March 6, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool but wonderful tool at a great price..make sure to USE the go no go tool just to be sure..only complaint is its hard or impossible to use in tight spots like between floor joists or behind water closets...other than that its awesome October 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seven stars for value. I've been using this tool for a couple of years with a variety of brands of tubing, fixtures and bands, without any problems (except when I didn't crimp with one fluid motion or accidentally had a bad angle). As a homeowner, this covers the only two sizes of pipe in my house. The complaint about not fitting into small places is true, but you will quickly learn to build subassemblies and then install them with crimps in open places like the basement. When all else fails, a $5-7 Sharkbite fitting will save the day. I'm sure that isn't cost effective for a plumber, but for a homeowner saving the cost of hiring a plumber - they are pretty affordable. I read reviews of other products that have inserts for different sizes, but 1) the reviews for ease of use were bad and 2) I only need the two sizes on this tool. Plus you can't beat the bang for your buck with this simple tool. I actually have more plumbing in my house than I would have otherwise, because it's so fast and easy to do. My wife asked if I could put a hose bib out back and instead of hemming and hawing about another item on my honey do list, I made it a honey did list item in about 15 minutes. And I didn't need a torch, which is fortunate, because I made a connection within inches of my gas supply. July 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1 Tool - 2 Most Common Sizes Recently plumbed house with borrowed multi-head tool made by Z***. Got real tired of changing heads, but the tool worked fine. I just wanted to own my own tool just to have on hand in case of emergency or expansion of the system, so I bough this. Did some crimps with this. It actually crimps much better than the higher priced Z***. They seem to be more true and conform to the pipe better than Z***. Price is the best I have found. May 22, 2013
