Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work great. Worked great. You will need a 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 inch paddle bit to use these in 2x4's.

Do you install a Sharkbite pipe insulator in the stud before running the pipe or can you install them after you run the pipe (of course with the proper size hole)?

Asked by: RichF
Hello, SharkBite pipe insulators should be installed in the stud before running the pipe. Thank you

Just to clarify the older question here:  What size hole do I need to drill into my joists so that I can fit these PEX Insulators?  Not the size of the PEX or copper pipe, we want to know the outer diameter of the insulators (all 3 sizes).

Asked by: xxPaulCPxx
Greetings PaulCP, A good rule of thumb would be approximately 1 inch larger than the diameter of the pipe. We are working to get a more exact installation size, but we measured the 1/2 and it's coming out at approximately 1-1/2 inches.

What diameter holes are each size (1/2", 3/4", and 1") designed to fit into? If I were to pre-drill holes for them, what size bit would I use?

Asked by: Wilco
Greetings Wilco, All our supports are labeled to reflect Copper Tube Size (Inside Diameter), but takes in account the wall thickness variable allowed under Copper Tube Sizing regulations. Most Outside Diameter for these are the next eighth. So 1/2 inch would be 5/8 inch or 3/4 inch would be 7/8 inch. If you still have questions or any concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at 1-877-700-4242 between 8am to 6 pm est Monday - Friday.
