Intended for use with clamp ring PEX tubing installations, the SharkBite PEX Clamp Tool compresses PEX tubing clamp rings to barb fittings. The clamp tool will not release from the clamp ring unless a properly-secured connection has been made. Only one clamp tool is required for all sizes of SharkBite PEX tubing installations, ranging from 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” fittings.
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 ?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?
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.
