Answer: 
Hi Novice,
The "slip end" is only an indicator of which end does not have a tube stop and has the ability to slide back and forth over the pipe to make the connection. The "slip end" can be installed on either pipe in vertical or horizontal direction.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solved my water heater install problem Needed to add a new shut-off valve between a 3/4" copper wall stub pipe and the soldered/fixed water heater 3/4" copper. This slip coupling was the perfect solution. I put about 2" of extra pipe inside the coupling (you can fill the coupling with spare pipe) and connected that "slip" end to the new shut-off valve, also a Shark product. Then I aligned the other end of the coupling with the pipe stub coming out of the wall. Then I used the plastic U-shaped "release tool" to release the slip end of the coupling and slide the coupling onto the wall pipe stub. There needs to be a couple of inches of "spare" pipe inside the coupling so it could slide forward onto on the stub pipe as the stub pipe connection goes into the coupling about 1". Do test and understand how the plastic U-shaped release works before assembling onto a pipe or getting into tight spaces. If the tool is placed properly it is very easy to release the pipe. Basically, the plastic collar protruding from the Shark products, when pressed inwards, releases the Shark "teeth" and, therefore, the pipe. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked better than epoxy! Tips For whatever reason this 1in size doesn't show up in the Home Depot search engine. Notes during installation: 1. 2in of pipe is to be removed- if you are replacing a failed epoxy repair, 2in can be tight. I'd skip the epoxy and go straight to this in the future. 2. Several comments here about how hard it is to slide. I found that the release tool orientation made a difference- it was easier when the square corner side of the release tool faced the sharkbite instead of the rounded corner side. That plus some wiggling and rotating got it to move reasonably well. 3. Read a tip to add a grounding strap across the sharkbite- made sense to me and was worth the extra $5. Two brass grounding clamps and #6 copper wire, both from the electrical department did the job. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thing is the bomb Was working in cramped quarters with the pipe a foot and a half below ground level. I had tried to solder but I couldn't get underneath. This was such a great find and I had the repair completed in a few minutes. Thank you shark bite. August 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, but not as easy as the video I needed to replace a leaking gate valve located in a confined space and required some sort of repair coupling. Soldering would have been a real pain, so I tried these. They're awesome. However, if you watch the online videos, you might expect that it's relatively simple to use the included clip to slide the coupling back towards the rest of the pipe. It's not. Instead of pushing this fitting on al the way until it hits the stop, push it on at least an inch, but no more than you need to get it to fit. Releasing the fitting is a bit of a bear, and the less you have to go, the better. November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not all that easy I read the reviews, I looked at all the options I could find. I have used other brands of push fittings but this one seems to be the best. The slip end is clearly marked.. But SLIP is not a word that I would use. I marked the one inch line on one side and then tried to slide the 3/4 in coupling up the other side. I finally figured out that it HAS to be completely lined up (and I am not sure how to verify that) before it will slide up the pipe. Then with the tool in place I started pushing, pulling, cursing and what ever else I could think of. Ya, right!!!! I then got out my 12" crescent wrench and tapped (not very hard) while lining up the receiving end and kept tapping until it hit the mark. The wrench made all the difference to getting it to move and with the wrench it was fairly easy. Turned on the water and not a drop! April 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for gaps I had a sweat fitting that I couldn't get to seal, so I cut it out and used this to replace it. Easy to install (but it's a good idea to practice on some spare pipe first) and it's sealing perfectly. July 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Fantastic! These push-to-connect or slip couplings from Sharkbite is simply amazing! I had a leaking water softener but to replace the softener head I had to remove all the copper pipes by cutting it because it was all welded together. I cut my pipe at the inlet and outlet end and push these 2 couplings on each end and put everything back together. No leaks and just easy to install. December 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install I used this shark bite slip coupling on my first DIY plumbing job. I had never tried to solder any pipes as I was afraid I might end up with leaks. Thus plumbing jobs in my home were left for the professionals. This time I dared to cut a pipe and replace the anode in my >20 year old water heater myself. A quick peek on youtube confirmed that shark bite couplings were the way to go. The slip coupling fit well and was a breeze to install. March 10, 2015
