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.

Nothing in the product descriptions mentions it's made in USA, but it is and stamped "Made in USA". Looking up the patent number listed on this tool (at US patent office uspto.gov) I could see which USA company actually owns the rights and manufactures this professional-grade tool, it's just rebranded to SharkBite. The price is GREAT, the exact same three-handle tool (just rebranded to a couple different names) is selling for twice the price, and more, currently on a big online retailer that sounds like a big river in Brazil. Great American made tool at half the price of others online........jackpot!!!!!

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

Hi, 1. Can the 23081 clamp crimping tool be obtained in Australia? 2. Are the plastic elbow barb fittings OK for use with diesel fuel, such as to connect with a fuel filter on a diesel engine in a stationary generator set application?

Asked by: Patrick Redmond
Hello, The clamp and crimp tools are not available in the Australian market. Our poly alloy barb fittings are only certified for use in potable water and radiant/hydronic heating applications. We do not recommend using this fitting in any other application. Thank you

Is this compatible with stainless steel clamps other than Sharkbite brand, like the Oetiker clamps?

Asked by: KenA
Good morning, As long as the other clamp rings meet the same codes and standards our rings do, you won't have any issues. You can find our clamp information by following this link: http://www.sharkbite.com/product/clamps-rings/

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 ?

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.
