Hello, Unfortunately, SharkBite model # UC072LFA5 is not suitable for use with hose bibb threads. This fitting has FIP (female iron pipe) threads while hose bibbs use GHT (garden hose threads). It will be necessary to find an adapter that will go from GHT to FIP. If you have additional questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Best Regards, Best Regards,

Can this be used together with a 1/2” NPS threaded end? Is this NPS or NPT, or does it matter?

Asked by Greg May 16, 2019

Answers

This fitting can be used with a 1/2" NPT (or MIP), according to the fitting description. It does matter! NPT threads are tapered, NPS threads are straight.

No. You would need out adapter that is specific for a hose thread. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

Does the threaded part swivel or is it all one solid piece?

(What's this)
I had been looking for a new shop light for the side of my shop where I wash cars and was hesitant to buy one because of how wet the area can get and I didn't want an electrical hazard. After I found this light I new it was the right one for me. Its 4ft long with a frosted cover over the LEDs so as not to blind you but rather emit a bright glow that is perfect for most any shop. Its practically waterproof or water resistant, when you take the frosted cover off the light it reveals a seal around the edge and inside will be the mounting brackets and extra hardware for them. This product is a very well made item and I am pleased to have it. The only downside is that is doesn't come with a plug-in, so it has to be wired directly in to your electric grid, but it shouldn't be hard for anyone with a basic knowledge of electricity. All in all a fine light and will be looking to buy another one in the future.

(What's this)
This is a five pack of adapters. The fittings are well made from quality material giving a good conversion from plastic to brass for a threaded connection. All edges are beveled giving a good feel with no sharp edges. No visible signs of flaws in the casting process or subsequent milling of the threads. All pieces in the pack looked identical indicative of good quality control in the manufacturing process.

Best price when you buy the 5 or 10 pack. Model # UC072LFA5 Internet #206133177 Store SO SKU #1001395229 SharkBite 1/2 in. Brass PEX Barb x Female Threaded Adapter (5-Pack) I have started using more PEX instead of PVC because of how quick it is to install. It may cost a little more but the time savings is great. The SharkBite PEX barb X female adapter is an easy way to transition from threaded pipe to PEX Pipe when you are hooking up a water heater, faucet or toilet. I would recommend these for those working on new install or a remodel.

Glad Home Depot carries certain fittings in the Shark Bite brand. I’ve always felt that sometimes the Apollo stuff just isn’t as good. I always feel SB is higher quality or slightly higher price. But well worth it for peace of mind.
