Questions & Answers

does this come with all the dies or are they purchased separately?

does this come with all the dies or are they purchased separately?
Asked by: BIgDog
this does not use dies, it crimps a special band clamp using the jaws in the face of the clamp tool

Is this a ratchet tool? Can this be operated with one hand?

The problem is the need to hold the clamp in one hand and compress with the other. Does this tool accomplish that.
Asked by: Christian
It is not a ratchet tool. One or two hand use depends on size of clamps and individual hand strength.

3/8 in. - 1 in. PEX Clamp Tool is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.

It remained calibrated for the entire job. This is the perfect size for 0.5" and 0.75". Compact design makes tight spaces easy. Not a single failure/redo clamp needed. Flawless performance. It's okay for 1" also, but be prepared for a workout. I have big strong hands, but thought it was fairly difficult to close them down the first half of the way. I found it was easiest to first use the third handle to the extent possible (about 25% of the way), followed by interlocking my fingers and using the base of my palms against the two primary handles for the next 25% (or so), and lastly, griping the handles "normally" once they were close enough together to wrap my hands around them. If I were doing this daily, I'd probably consider purchasing a larger cinch clamp tool (in addition to this more compact one) for the 1" as to have more leverage on the handles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works reliably, precisely It works with great precision and success. I like to review instructions before any new job, but the enclosed sheet has tiny black letters on dark orange paper which becomes harder to read with use.

This tool works with the "cinch" style fasteners, not the "clamp" style. As a DIY'er, I found that many different brands use different terminology for there products. A "clamp" compresses the ring 360 degrees around to secure it to the piping, a "cinch" will pinch the side of the fitting to compress the ring 360 degrees around to fasten it securely. The small handle allows you to begin to secure the fitting and then you can use the larger handle to finish the compression. The new plumbing took no time to do. Very happy with this new tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is AWESOME and MADE IN USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing in the product descriptions mention... This thing is AWESOME and MADE IN USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing in the product descriptions mentions it's made in USA, but it is and stamped "Made in USA". Looking up the patent number listed on this tool (at US patent office uspto.gov) I could see which USA company actually owns the rights and manufactures this professional-grade tool, it's just rebranded to SharkBite. The price is GREAT, the exact same three-handle tool (just rebranded to a couple different names) is selling for twice the price, and more, currently on a big online retailer that sounds like a big river in Brazil. Great American made tool at half the price of others online........jackpot!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idiot proof, watertight seal I just bought it because Lowes was out of 1” crimp rings so I had to use the pinch rings. I am never going back. Simple to use and perfect every time.

All connections I have made with this tool have are leak free in my first experience with PEX tubing so they have been as easy as claimed. I need two hands to use it, people with larger and stronger hands may be able to use one hand if there is space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The go to tool This tool never fail to work and is the go to when installing fittings. I will never use any thing else but this tool when I need to make a new connection or when doing a repair. Would recommend this to any person who need to make a clean and trusted connection.
