you will regret it if you buy these, I have many times had to unlock them from their shutoff state. this requires turning off the water and removing the hose at the valve end. today I am replacing these hoses with normal ones. you have been warned.

Good in theory but the device is way, way too sensitive to be of any real added value. The hoses constantly required resetting which entails removing them from the washing machine hose bibs. Very aggravating to say the least. You're better off investing in a good shutoff switch valve for the washing machine water supplies.

My new samsung washer requires that any floodsafe valve must be removed from the water supply lines. There are no instructions from this hose manufacturer on how to remove the floodsafe valve.
So this product doesn't work with samsung washer.
I tried to use it anyway and it blocks water flow to the washer, so back it goes to Home Depot.
Defective design, I.M.H.O.
The packaging of this product should be changed to warn customers that it only works on select washers.

Just installed these. No hot water flow and reduced cold water flow. Back they go. Replaced similar hose without hose break protection. They were fine.

Purchased these thinking the higher price would provide higher quality. Couldn't have been more wrong. SS hoses are very good idea but these hoses have a "safety" shut off that is to prevent flooding in the even the hoses burst or the valve in the washing machine breaks. The problem is this stupid design shuts off the water supply needlessly. And when it does if you're lucky your washing machine will shut off and not be damaged. In my case my washing machine just stopped working. The reason for the shut down was I was on vacation for a week and shut off the house water while I was gone. When this happens I get air in my lines when the pressure drops and when water turned back on the air is pushed out. This results in the shut off of these supply hoses and I have to disconnect them and drain the lines several times before they work again.

Every time the machine turns on, the auto shut off activates thus eliminating it's usefulness.
Nice hoses, but does not work well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stu I agree too slow for a washing maching
I installed these on my washing machine. Although I did not have the false shutoff issue, the washing machine fills quite a bit slower. I would estimate it fills at half speed which makes a bit longer for the laundry to finish. I am returning these and buying the regular steel braided hoses.
I like the concept but I still turn the valves off after every use so it might have been over kill.
