The rubber grip comes loose & spins after a couple of uses so it is difficult to tighten it to the hose fitting. Also, you will be lucky if the fittings make it make it through a season's use. The soft aluminum male insert does not mesh well with the female receiver as any nicks or scratches make connecting them difficult (very aggravating when hands are wet). They need to go back to real steel or brass materials (like those once made in America). Most people would pay a REASONABLE premium for quality products that last. The American consumer is getting ripped off not only by having to buy the same worthless products over and over again but also in terms of lost productivity in having to make more trips to the store. Home Depot buyers: WISE UP!!!

First, I am only commenting on the adapter which typically connects to a hose end sprayer allowing for a quick disconnect. That is the piece with the male hose threads on one end and the smooth male piece which connects to the mating quick disconnect fitting. This piece has no moving parts. Now that I have clearly defined the piece which I am talking about, let me say the durability of the construction is junk. Some years ago (10 to 20 years) I purchased similar fittings. This Home Depot fitting was fine dimensionally and fit well and worked well, but the thickness of the metal between the grooved quick disconnect piece and the male hose thread portion was extremely thin. I have attached a photo of the separated piece. You can see the separated metal around the top perimeter where the break occurred. This piece was attached to the end of the hose and the other end (not shown in photo) was attached to a garden spray wand for plant watering. The wand broke away from the hose end. Looking at the photo you can see the bare metal break. The thickness of the metal at that point was likely no more than 0.02". These quick disconnects are nothing more than die case pot metal castings with a cheap brass plating. My older fittings are somewhere 0.10" thick (minimum) at the same point, and show no signs of failure. Don't waste you money on this junk.

I have several and they all connect securely with no leakage, or very little leakage--certainly far less than connecting a gardening tool (nozzle, sprinkler) directly on to a hose. It makes changing watering implements fast and convenient. Understand, these will wear over time and will need to be replaced occasionally. That said,they are quite inexpensive and make changing out water tools from the hose extremely fast and convenient. I expect I'll get a couple, maybe three years from them, possibly longer, and I'll be quite pleased if they last that long (2-3 years) with the high usage I put them through.

We have been using quick disconnects on our plethora of garden hoses and sprinklers for decades, and occasionally need to supplement or replace various pieces. These quick disconnects are compatible with the decades-old ones, which are no longer being produced. For many years, no compatible replacements could be found, but they are now available again. They work, and the price is good. I am not, however, impressed by the construction or machining. They are not built to the same quality standards as I normally expect, but for garden hose purposes, they seem to be adequate.

I bought this thing in order for me to have a quick disconnect to my pressure washer... I did not realize that once you disconnect the hose, you no longer get water out. Not what I expect but that feature definitely works... if that is what you are looking for. Further the rubber part for you fingers that is used to tighten your hose with slipped. I had to cut that off with a razor knife in order to remove the hose. Other than those two items the unit is fine. Remember, if you disconnect what ever it is you are attaching the end of the hose, no water will come out until you remove this off the end of your hose.

This product has cheesy rubberized parts that break off especially on the male part. I use them to quickly disconnect hoses when we're about to have a freeze. It has a valve that keeps water from coming out when disconnected. While this may be well intentioned, it would trap water at the hose bib if you forget to turn the bib off. Then your hose bib may freeze. Plus it leaks when in use. Whatever happened to nice brass ones without a valve?

They are make in China now and the fit and finish is terrible. The lady that handled the return said and lot of customers are returning these and she agreed they are really poorly made to what they used to be. The couplers Harbor Freight sell are better than these a much cheaper. Home Depot should stop selling this junk. Di
