This worked flawless. Repaired my hose in just a few minutes. It would be nice if the screws were just a bit longer.

Easy install to repair my broken hose. Quality seems good. It screws on and off easier than the old one did.

Install is easy, the tube is not as strong as it should be so I have replaced multiple times. I have giant tortoises that try to drag the hose around the yard

Thickness of the metal end is very thin. Much flimsier than the original end of hose. Longevity may be an issue.

Not made for heavy duty hoses
This hose mender was too small for my 5/8" heavy duty farm style hoses. They clamps would not go around the outside of the hose. The material is also very light weight, causing the threads to strip fairly easy. I'm not sure if the material is zinc or aluminum but it's definitely not a heavy duty brass. This would probably be decent for a regular garden hose but not for the heavy duty/farm style hoses with thick exteriors.

    The size of the zinc part makes it hard to attach a hose to a spigot. Also, the female end is not brass, but some kind of other metal will a yellow coating. I’m not sure it will hold up. Next time, I will spend a little more and get a little more.
