Product Overview

The SharkBite Connection System offers an extensive line of barb fittings plus manifolds, supports and tools for both clamp and crimp ring PEX tubing installations. When a water distribution project requires low cost materials, a system that utilizes PEX tubing, barb fittings and manifolds is a good choice. In addition to being cost effective, these systems simplify the installation compared to copper or rigid plastic pipe systems that use solder or glue for fitting joints. The SharkBite PEX/Barb System includes everything needed, from pressure regulators and valves with barb connectors, to chrome plated stops for hooking up fixtures.

  • Cuts 1/4 in. - 1 in. sizes
  • Used in conjunction with PEX pipe
  • Compactly designed for tight spaced
  • No loose components
  • Easy to use

Customer Questions & Answers

Does the shark-bite cutter simply shear the tube or do you need room to rotate it as in a metal pipe cutter?

Asked by: jonnydoneit
It shears the tube, similar to a pair of pruning shears. Easy.

Do I really need to remove the plastic insert from a sharkbite fitting if I am using copper pipe?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, but it's awfully hard to get copper pipe to slide all the way in if you don't. The plastic insert tends to hang up on the end of the copper, making it hard to firmly set the copper all the way into the fitting.

Are the blades replacable or is this unit considered disposal?

Can you buy replacement blades or do you have to buy a whole new unit when blade dulls?
Asked by: cheffner
There is no obvious way to remove/replace a worn blade, however, the portion of the cutter that houses the blade can be separated from the rest of the tool, wouldn't be too difficult to pass the blade over a stone if it got irritatingly dull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, safe, and easy to use Look, you can cut PEX with a utility knife, so it's not like you MUST have this tool, but on the other hand, this tool is not all that expensive, it cuts PEX cleanly and quickly, always giving a smooth, square cut.. Also, there is no danger of a knife slipping and hurting you, or your 9 year old helper. We did our PEX installation down in the crawl space and with this tool, I was able to have my kid mark and cut all the pipe, whereas, if I had used a utility knife instead, I probably would have done all the cuts myself. I do note that the blade itself is pretty thin and not replaceable, but for the price of this tool, I won't mind buying another if it wears out before I am finished with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product does not make square cuts as advertised !!! This PEX tool will not make square cuts on 1/2 or 3/4 pex pipe. I purchased 4 pex cutters from 4 different manufacturers and this one was the worse when it came to cutting the pipe. I purchased a Lennox and it was a little better but not perfect. I also purchased an Apollo brand and the received the same result as the lennox. The winner was the kobalt pex cutter tool from lowes. It makes almost near perfect cuts depending on your technique. I would not recommend buying this sharkbite tool. You will not be pleased with the quality of the cuts that it will produce .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pex cutter on the market I've tried the ratcheting cutters and I've tried the single blade scissor types where the blade often moves at a non right angle and the cut is difficult (maybe i bought the cheap ones) but this pex cutter goes through 3/4 pex like butter with perfect 90 degree cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cutter This Cutter works well! Cuts is very smooth and square which is important. Great for working in tight spaces like under a sink which is what i needed it for, so im pleased with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from quick cutter, untrue It is so difficult to make a precise square end cut on PEX tubing in order to properly seat a SharkBite or conventional connector. I had high hopes I could get a square cut with this tool. This tool cuts easily and quickly, but theres no way it will cut 1" Warsbo PEX tubing true. I tried a dozen times and the cuts are all off square too much. Back to the miter saw for true cuts.
