A: Hi, The SharkBite 3/4 in. Push-to-Connect Disconnect Clip goes on the pipe and you push the clip in to the fitting so you can release the stainless steel grip ring. This will allow you to remove the fitting. If you would like more help or an explanation you can call tech support at 877-700-4242. (Kind regards,)
A: You slide it onto the pipe, flat side away from the shark bite connector, and push it up into the shark bite and it releases the clip inside and pushes the shark bite off the end of the pipe
A: This item depresses the collar to remove the fitting from the pipe. If you installed it on PVC you can remove it. Just be sure to use the proper pipe for your application.
A: It works on any 3/4 Sharkbite regardless of the pipe material.
A: If you're using sharkbite connectors this tool will help you remove the sharkbite from the pipe. Just make sure that you're using the right size, so if it's a ½ inch pipe use a ½ inch disconnect clip. You would put this on the pipe just at the edge of the sharkbite connector and push towards the sharkbite as you're pulling on the pipe. This tool will press against the sleeve at the edge of the sharkbite that disconnects the teeth that hold the it to the pipe. It's very simple to use.
A: Easy to use and no leaks. I used it with copper (old pipe) and SharkBite pipe. Connector pushes onto pipe about 1". If old copper, clean the cut edge make sure on rough edges. I used cloth pipe sandpaper. Used wire pipe cleaner the first time. I left is a little rough (like you do for soldering) and it leaked. Used the removal tool and pulled it off. Put the cilp over the pipe and pull it against the connect first. Then twist and pull the cilp and connector off the pipe. Then sanded and pushed it back on. No leak.
A: Simple, each connection has a spring type fitting on one or both ends that grips the pipe making the connection. That being said you must follow the guidelines as to the preparation of the pipe(s) to be inserted, specifically amount of pipe to be inserted in the fixture, but also insure no burrs, debris or “goop” are on the pipe to be used at the connection point.
A: This is very simple system to use but you must have sufficient pipe, that is you need to fully insert both sides of the (cleaned) pipe for this to work properly. If you do not, pressure pulses in the water system may cause a leak at the connector.
A: It works great for removing a fitting from the tubing. It compresses against the guide on the end of the fitting that keeps the fitting engaged to the tubing. The clips only work on one size tubing but are available to work on different sizes of tubing so you have to check what diameter tubing you have.
A: Simply insert the pipe into the connector then slip this over the pipe and firmly press in while you fully insert pipe. Great price to quicken the job and get it done the first time and great for removal. It aligns the joint quite well but may take a try or two to master. This is an inexpensive tool that really assists in the connection of the Shark-Bite connections, especially in close quarters. P.S. My neighbor used slip joints and had troubles with leaks, broken connectors and scraping copper pipe all to save a few dollars.
A: 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.
A: We have several short training videos on SharkBite.com that can help you with the products. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.
A: Yes. All SharkBite push to connect fittings can be reinstalled if removed and installed properly. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.
A: 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).
A: Not sure what you deem “clip”, but yes, I have removed the fitting after initial installation using this tool with no problems, but make sur you clean the pipe before re installation.
A: Of course
A: Yes, but I do recommend that you clean the surface of the pipe before reinstalling.
A: The sharkbite fitting can normally always be be reinstalled.
A: Yes I have done this many times........ Wait. I hear water running....... Oh just the kids
A: Yes, it can be reinstalled after removing using this clip.
A: Yes, it can. There’s a special tool for compressing the collar to remove the fitting, but after you do that the fitting can be reused.
