Customer Questions & Answers

does the shark bite clean the od and id of tubing?

Asked by: army
NickNacs answer is quite good and the negative feedback is hard to understand. The tool works well, on the outside of the pipe only, and the video that Nicknacs suggested is appropriate to the question.

does this tool mark the depth of the od pipe just by inserting the pipe into this tool or do I have to mark the od pipe with a pencil?

Asked by: tl
No, the tool does not mark your pipe. It simply shows the correct depth for each size pipe. Insert your pipe into the correct size end and mark. Give a few twists to debur and measure up for length. Marking the depth of the end of fitting for use with SharkBite connectors insures your piece will not be short.

does this really deburr? mine doesn't look like it would

I just bought one and it doesn't look like there's anything inside each tube that would deburr the OD. Is it tiny or hidden? Seems like a waste of money.
Asked by: BobbyElvis
Hello Bobby E: Giggles It is called YouTube, here is a link, and BTW FYI, never, ever just click on a link anyone sends you, even your best-est friend in the whole wide world, because it might be infected unbeknownst to them, always copy and paste and if you have an anti-virus and/or firewall already set up on your medium device it most likely will catch it before hurting your device! In any case here you go, it does not really and actually address you exact inquiry, but I believe in a roundabout way {no pun intended} will answer your question: Great luck to you Bobby

Customer Reviews

Safe Seal Depth and Pipe Deburring Tool is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, but know it's limitations I was never a fan of "mechanical" seals behind walls until I helped my son-in-law rebuilding their bathroom. Still leary of hidden applications, but I made the jump and have used these when joining difference materials (as in old copper to CPVC). As a depth gage, very easy and useful. For deburring the OD - useful, although I think careful use of a small knife works fine also. I suspect those who report "chattering" or the like may have been using too much pressure. For deburring the ID - it was not intended for this purpose, which I find disappointing, given that the "seal" surface is the ID. I ensure a clean, burr-free ID by using a little emory cloth.

This inexpensive tool takes the guess work out of cutting your copper pipe to the correct length when using SharkBite connectors. It is a must have if using SharkBite connectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. Doug

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money 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 5 out of 5 by from Do Not Leave Home Depot Without it! Purchased my Shark Bites for my kitchen plumbing and went home. I had a couple of questions before I installed so I went back to Home Depot and the plumbing dept. guy ask if I had the Shark Bite Safe Seal Tool. For the money it is a great investment. After I cut my Shark Bite 1/2" plumbing pipe, I lightly twisted the pieces through the Safe Seal Tool and sure enough, it nicely and easily cleaned up the ends of each piece of pipe, plus, you can mark the 1" mark exactly with the tool. Hooked the valves and connectors up with my piece of pipe then slid them right over the old piping, which in my case was polybutylene (old mobile home grey plumbing). If you have the same, make sure to use Shark Bites for polybutylene. Works well! Would not hesitate to use Shark Bites for any future plumbing project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok at Best 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes life simple 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)
