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 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.

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!!!

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

I'm frequently changing fittings on the end of the garden hose...sprayer, wand, lawn sprinkler, feeder. This beats having to pull out the slip joints or adjustable wrench every time to change the device on the end. You need to lubricate the female end from time to time as it can get sticky...a little silicone spray or WD40 takes care of that.

This renders the entire idea of a quick-connect useless, since you have to unscrew it everytime to use it, unless you are planning to plug it into another quick-connect male. For my purposes, this was a waste of money, and the product description should have indicated it had this cap.

When is Home Depot going to start stocking/selling quality water hoses and accessories? Please stop selling this Chinese JUNK. These fittings leak as soon as you use them. Water hoses are the same way. I only have bought Commercial grade hoses from HD and almost always have to return them due to leaks etc., as soon as you hook them to a home outside faucet. HELP !!
