Reviews

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool This was my first run at playing with PEX, I had come home to a couple copper pipes leaking. The pipes were old and corroding. It was time to replace my pipes. This tool gets into tight spaces and clamps multiple sizes of PEX with ease. The Calibration of the tool is very simple and mine was set right out of the packaging. It is very durable and will be around for a while. Overall I'm very pleased.

What is the difference between the UC961 and the 23081? Advantages/disadvantages?  Perhaps I missed it, but I cant's find a good comparison of the two tools on line. Thanks!

Asked by: BillK
Greetings, The UC961 has a lever in the middle which allows it to be used with one (1) hand when you fully open the tool. The 23081 usually takes two (2) hands to operate.

I bought the 2308 PEX CLAMP TOOL and have been happy with it. After a few uses I find the dark orange instruction sheet with tiny black print a real challenge to read anymore. Is there a black-and-white copy online I could print out?

Asked by: gyre
Greetings Gyre, We do not have this available online. A member from our customer service team will e-mail you a copy of this.

I have the crimp tool that looks like a bolt cutter. this tool works well. but I need a crimper that can be used in tight spaces. I saw one in Home Depot, that seems to be usable in tight spaces. It appears to be used with pliers for the pressure?

Asked by: heavyg
Greetings Heavyg, We don't have any smaller or compact tools for the Clamp rings. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The tool you saw, is designed for our Cramp system.

I have a 23081 clamp tool.  I have long lost the calibration tool. Would it be possible to use two drill bits of the go and nogo dimensions as a calibration tool ?  If so, what size bits would be required.  Are replacement calibration tools available ?

Asked by: Ken H
Greetings Ken, We can send out a new Go/No Go gauge for the clamp tool free of charge. You just need to send an e-mail to techsupport@cashacme.com with your address and who it should be attention to. We are unsure what two drill bits you are speaking about. Please send photos to the e-mail above as well. Please click the link and go to page 7 for calibration instructions: http://www.sharkbite.com/sharkbite/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/SHARKBITE-PEX-INSTALLATION-INSTRUCTIONS.pdf

What tool is required to remove the clamps on barb connections?

Asked by: Richard D
Greetings Richard, You could use a flat head screw driver and pop the lip of the protruding piece of metal along the side of the clamp or you can cut the clamp where you compressed the metal down.
