How does this work?

Asked by Bruce January 30, 2019

Answers

Just push on the "U" over the pipe and slide it towards the SharkBite fitting. By pulling it hard toward the body of the SharkBite you push the plastic bushing into the body, releasing the fitting's teeth and it will slide off the pipe. If you are still not clear, search YouTube for videos of removing SharkBite fittings.

Can a Sharkbite fitting be reinstalled after removing with the clip?

Asked by Jimbo November 3, 2018

Answers

Simple answer yes but care must be taken to ensure pipe(s) to be reinserted are clean. I have only needed to undo a couple of fittings and never had leaks but made sure I always had enough pipe to do this and/or replaced a section to ensure full insertion of the pipe(s).

Do not rely on this. Yesterday my friend and I wasted at least an hour trying to remove a fitting with this. Then as an experiment we connected a spare fitting to a length of Pex and out in the open tried again and again, using bare hands and even pushing against the clip with channel locks. At times using both of us, 4 hands. Finally we drove to Home Depot and bought the $8-and-change removal tongs which worked. 2 grown men with fairly strong hands trying again and again to use this little clip. Nearly impossible unless you get really lucky. My hands are still sore.

We are sorry you had trouble using the disconnect clip. Yes the disconnect tongs are easier to use for removal due to having more leverage. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242. SharkBiteCashAcme

Waste of Time and Money
I was almost sold on Sharkbite, until I was forced to "undo" a fitting, using the disconnect clips. The in store demonstration of the removal process was nothing like my personal experience. In real life, I found myself in a cold and muddy 26" crawl space cutting the fitting off, like I've done, for the last two decades, except at four times the cost.

Good morning, We are sorry to hear about the issues you experience when trying to remove our products. Our main design for SharkBite is to stay on the pipe. Removing them can be difficult. The difficulty can only increase as you install them in difficult locations. If you are using SharkBite products often, you could look at getting disconnect tongs. These could allow you better grip and easier removal.

Very difficult to use, hard to catch the ridge of a part, with its tiny body the clip is not easy to hold and apply a force to disconnect a part, especially in a limited working area; also it's broken easily.

We are sorry you had difficulty using the disconnect clip. We also have disconnect tongs available both in store and online that make disconnecting a fitting a little easier. We would be happy to send you a set of 1/2" disconnect tongs if you would like to try them. If so, please send an email to THDStoreSupport@SharkBite.com and reference this review, along with your name and ship to address. SharkBitePlumbingSolutions

Slick trick. Nothing was wrong with my 6 year old sharkbite shower adapter, I was able to remove it and reuse it with this. Way cheaper than a new fitting.
