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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Used this tool to finish basement 3-piece bathroom. Tool was relatively easy to use, calibration was correct out of the package, and most importantly all of the fittings sealed perfectly. Used brass Sharkbite fittings. The tool was a bit difficult to use on 3/4" PEX due to the larger opening angle to engage the tool, and also required a lot of force which was awkward when working overhead. Overall great performance, just be prepared to use some muscle if needed.

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.

Questions

I have the 23081 Pex Clamp tool and got it stuck in a tight space where I cannot clamp all the way down to release the tool. It is locked on the stainless steel clamp rings on the connection. How can I release the tool and get it out of this tight space?

Asked by: JayS
Good morning, You will need to compress it all the way down to release it. The tool is designed to remove any guess work regarding if the connection is done right. By make the tool only release when the connection is right, we remove any need to have to check it with a gauge.

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.
