          A:  No issues at all with this product 

          by|Apr 23, 2023

            A:  I used it on a hose that connects to another hose. It was easy.  And no leaks where hose was attached! For me, I believe it would be easier to hook to my faucet because I would have something to hold while attaching to the faucet.  If it does not work, you can return it.

              A:  I wouldn't trust this 'faux' brass fitting to Not get stuck. For insurance, smear a material called "No-Alox' or a similar material HD does sell to protect that from happening. I keep 3 tubes of that stuff around for all these faux brass fittings.

                  A:  Don't know. A normal user is not in the position to find out about the content of the metal components. Have to find this information from the manufacturer.
