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.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 17, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 . September 18, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well for PEX Cuts PEX well, not so good on other plastics (for which it was not designed). Cuts are clean, most times there's no burr to be cleaned off after the cut. The cutter is designed to help make the cuts square, but it's not perfect: be careful to line up the cutter at right angles to the pipe before cutting. It's hard to use in tight places (on existing plumbing) but not so hard as a hacksaw. December 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 28, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool This is a great tool for cutting pex tubing. So far I have about 50 cut on this cutter and it is still razor sharp. Other cutter that I have used tend to crush the tube before cutting though it but this cutter slices the tube clean and with no distortion to the shape. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 worked best bought two tubing cutters one ratcheting and this one found the ratcheting cutter hard to keep tubing straight in. this cutter worked great for me. June 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 18, 2012
