Cheap construction - not as pictured
I was very disappointed to look at this when I got it home and note that it is aluminum with a cheesy brass-look finish. The narrow section that fits inside the hose shows telltale lines on each side telling me it was formed in a mold; this will make it more likely to leak. In addition the aluminum will oxidize. The photo is NOT the same as the item delivered. I will return it

    Warning ! Do not use!
    Warning! Unless you are looking for a project down the road, don't use these. I bought four of them and learned the hard way that they corrode very quickly where the threads make contact with hose bib, nozzle, etc., eventually making it impossible to remove, no matter how much WD-40 you use. They are cheap aluminum fittings colored to look like brass. Aluminum presents a greater risk of galvanic corrosion than most other materials. This means that where it comes into contact with other metals it corrodes quickly, and the result is the threads become permanently stuck together. So unless you are handy with tools and want to waste the time cutting away and knocking the old threads off with a chisel, hopefully not damaging your hose bib, nozzle, or other fitting in the process, then go with REAL brass (but these seem to be getting harder to find at home depot) or plastic. I've attached a picture of the aftermath.

    Hose clamp doesn't keep in water pressure, so water leaks out between hose and barb connection.

      I wanted some spares so I ordered a few of these for pick up. When I opened the bag and took a closer look, I returned them the next day after getting some real brass ones from my local hardware store. These are cheap die cast, with barely enough plating to cover the base metal. You're lucky if one lasts a full season!

      I purchased this to repair a hose from last year that I couldn't get unscrewed. This is supposed to fit my hose size, the hose is one of the expensive heavy duty ones. After installing this "mender" my hose is spraying water every really really bad. Total waste of my time and effort.
