Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbmcacw Shark Bite Tool
This tool is great and is very affordable. Been working with shark bite fittings for a while and it helps you to not second guess yourself when you push the shark bite fitting on, weather it is all the way on or not. This tool once you deburr the tubing & put a mark on the tubing. Using this tool as your guide with it still on the tubing, put a mark where the top of the tool ends on the tubing. You then take the shark bite fitting pop it on, you will then see that the fitting will stop where that mark is. Now you have a true fit no second guessing.

Used on Pex pipe to copper tubiing to remove sharp outer edge and chamfer the edge of copper tubing in preparation to install push in Sharkbite fitting as well as a depth gauge to make sure the push in Sharkbite fittings were installed to the correct depth. Made the job easier and I found one of copper tubing's were concentric when the Sharkbite connector would not slide all the way to the mark.

I have done pluming repairs for a very long time. Thought I would try it while I was replacing my water heater. Doesn't clean the outside of the pipe and doesn't deburr the inside or outside of the pipe. Use a pocket knife and a piece of sandpaper and save your money. Very dissatisfied.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mjprof Worst excuse for a tool ever.
The tool is almost worthless! It does not deburr well, and in fact left chatter marks that were worse than before deburring. The tool does not do any deburring on the ID either. The depth gauge could be useful. but I found it simpler to use a tape measure. My use was on 1" copper pipe, and perhaps others have had better experience with smaller diameters, but my results were very poor.

This makes your life easier when installing pipes. Each socket has at its base a sharp blade which deburrs the end of the pipe with a few twists.
Works with copper and PEX, (probably also PVC but I have not tried that yet)

Doesn't deburr at all , in fact it creates more burrs then a fresh cut with a tubing cutter just use a file .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thebox Don't install pex without this
If your planning to run pex make sure you use this tool without it your more likely to cut your pipe to short or get a leak . It's straight forward and shouldn't be overlooked

As a deburring tool, it sucks. It leaves a rough edge that can damage the plastic collar on the fitting. Do yourself a favor and if you don't have a quality deburring tool, a light touch with a file if necessary, and some 80 grit paper will give you a smooth edge. As a depth gauge, it's fine.
