However I realized when I started pressure washing my fence, I needed additional hose length to reach the furthest parts. Instead of buying a new 100' garden hose, I went to Home Depot and purchased another 50' garden hose and (2) of these quick connectors. I used one set of the quick connectors to connect the hoses together. Then I spent some time trying to connect the other quick connector to my hose bibb. For a while, I could not figure out why I couldn't get the connector to fit on the hose bibb. Finally I figured out that my house bibb had a vacuum breaker fitting. When I removed that fitting, the quick connector went on with no problems. I decided I would rather have the vacuum breaker fitting then the quick connector. So for my personal use, I only use the quick connect to connect both of the 50' hoses together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product with one gotcha I bought several of these to replace some older quick connects. After I bought them, I realized they contain a small stopper that stops the water flow when the kit is disconnected. So this is a nice feature that allows you to leave the water running while disconnecting and reconnecting hoses, nozzles, etc. In addition to these, I had bought a couple of timers. After putting the timers together with the quick connect sets, I saw a significant decrease in water pressure out the end of the hose, enough so that sometimes it would not be enough to drive my moving sprinklers. Naturally, I thought it was the timers. However, after some testing, I realized the stoppers in the quick connects was the culprit. For me, I'd rather have strong water pressure, so I simply took a metal punch and hammered all the stoppers out of the quick disconnect kits that I bought. Now the water flows like it did, and the connectors work fine as well, I just have to shut off the water like I always have had to. So the stoppers are the only reason I took off one star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had doubts about how well quick disconnect hose fittings... I had doubts about how well quick disconnect hose fittings would work without significant leaking problems? The fittings may leak a little on occasion, but are very convenient when you have all your hose attachments equipped with these quick disconnects. Worked good enough for me I now have these fittings on everything now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality Bought this and I struggled to separate the parts, after looking at them I see why. Online it appears to be brass, but it’s not. Look at the pictures.... terrible quality, there is no way this will last if it would even seal in the first place. I took it back, not going to waste my time.

Screws on the hose easily, the male and female coupling mat nicely, it doesn't leak and the male is easy to pull out of the female by simply pulling down on the black slider. I've used it for a month and am pleased. We'll see if it leaks over time, but I would recommend.

I used the plastic quick disconnects for years but grew increasingly dissatisfied with their function. I have been using the Melnor metal quick disconnects for about a year and found them to be much more durable. They work much more smoothly and positively.

The female automatic shutoff feature fails very quickly and you must shut the flow off manually at the faucet to prevent getting soaked while removing and replacing another hose end fixture.

It is functional and easy to connect. I use it on a pressure washer connection and it will last part way through the summer before needing replaced.
