Customer Questions & Answers

How does this work?

I read another comment that you're supposed to use a vice grip, but it is bigger than my vice grip could reach (3" vs 1" or whatever the actual measurements are)- maybe I had the wrong tool. is it possible to load a picture of how it's supposed to work
Asked by: gloria
Use vice grips this tool works surprisingly good easy to use and more compact than having to carry the large zurn set around it's perfect but it's more intended for the professional plumber I wouldn't recommend using it if you don't have experience with pex

Don't the use of locking pliers damage the 3/8" go, no-go gauges?

Don't the use of locking pliers damage the 3/8" go, no-go gauges?
Asked by: OldManOnTheMountain
It is my understanding that since the tool does not have handles, that locking pliers are used to provide the force to crimp the copper rings on the tubing on the fittings. Therefore, from my experience with locking pliers, unless the tool is some kind of super hardened steel, then damage is likely to occure.

Can I use this tool with stainless steel sharkbite clamps?

Asked by: As
No. That tool is only for the copper crimp rings. You have to use our 3/8"-1" clamp tool. Sku number at store is 851561,

3/8 in., 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. PEX Copper Crimp Tool with Integrated Go/No-Go Gauge is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 12.

Only thing I dont like is that it got rust right away. The line I was changing couldn't be turned off 100% so it leaked a bit of water from the open lines. The tool got a bit water on it but I made sure to dry it out in my garage. When I went to use it a week later it had rust all over the place. I'm taking it back to home depot to get another one and I'm gonna properly treat it with oil or wax to prevent this again, but you'd think a tool to work on water lines and that might possibly get wet would have better protection from rust to begin with.

It worked perfectly for me on several crimps at the house. MUCH less expensive than the full size tools, that wouldn't have fit in the limited area I needed to do the crimp anyway. And yes, you have to have the right size locking pliers to do it correctly. Don't take a shortcut and try without them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Tool does what it is designed to do. Just make sure you have quality pair of vise grips. Made about 30 crimps with no leaks in system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Small Pex Hand Crimp Tool This is a great little tool if you only have a few crimps to do or have one or two between joists or in a tight spot that your crimp tool or cinch tool can't get into. I had one and thought I would give this tool a try and it worked just fine. Like other reviews I used my 10" Vise Grips with this and did a test clamp out in the open and it worked like a charm. I did it in 3 steps and done. Yes you do have to re-set your vise grips and I wouldn't want to do a whole house with it but it works just fine. Very substantial and it served it's purpose. I only used it on the 1/2" size and I normally use the cinch rings but this is just fine if you don't want to spend the money on the big tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super versatile I'm not a professional plumber, but I've used several different brands of the typical full-size long-handled PEX crimpers on many different projects. In my opinion this is a great purchase as both a stand-alone tool and as the perfect complement to a pair of long-handled crimpers. The other day I was in a jam had to remove and re-install my water heater. Unfortunately my PEX crimpers were 2.5 hours away so I bought these and *hoped* they would work. They do! What I've found is that while full-size crimpers are great, there are occasions where you just don't have the room to get in tight spots with them. That's where this tool shines. As others have pointed out, the instructions are pretty terrible and don't specifically say to use locking vice-grip style pliers, but they are definitely required and you'll need at least a 10" pair to get the jaws on to an un-crimped 3/4" ring. Don't try to use anything else, it just won't work. Other than that, you really don't need instructions - just look at the tool markings and use common sense. This thing will crimp 3 common sizes - 3/8" and 1/2" on the first side, then you twist the halves over for 3/4" on the other. The built-in Go/No-go gauge is SO CONVENIENT and a real time saver since you can just pop it right on after each crimp without completely removing the tool. One side is go, the other is no go. Easy to check them both in about 2 seconds. One other thing that I like is being able to 'set' loose crimp rings by hand. I used to just smack them with whatever hard object I had nearby or squeeze them slightly with pliers to stop them from moving around on the PEX pipe/fitting - but with this tool I just put a quick hand tight squeeze on the ring and it stays put. It's then very easy to re-align them in the same spot for the final crimp so as not to squeeze the ring unevenly from several different spots. The other benefit with the small size is that it's easy to observe the alignment make sure you're getting a good even crimp. I've found this very difficult to do with full size crimpers. They do take a bit more time to use so you probably wouldn't want to do a whole house re-pipe with them (even though you could), but they definitely get the job done, they fit in your pocket and they're extremely versatile for close quarters work. All things considered, there's really no reason not to purchase this tool if a) you need PEX crimpers for a quick 3/8-3/4" job - or b) if you work with PEX a lot and need something to get in to tight spots. Overall, I'm very pleased. This is an essential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool for small jobs I bought this tool for small repairs and didn't want spend a lot of money. I could not be more pleased with this tool. works great with large channel lock pliers. No regrets on this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job, but you also need 10" Vise Grips If you only have a few connections or they are in tight places, this little crimper works fine. But, you absolutely need to use it with 10" Vise Grips (nothing smaller). Channel Lock pliers, no matter how big, won't work. I had to find this out online because that info is not with the product (or even on the Sharkbite website). Used this in my camper to replace a few old polybutylene connex with PEX. Built in go- no-go feature a plus.
