          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Tee intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market. No tools are required to make a connection. They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security. When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. Color: Black.

          If you like SharkBite products, I'm here to tell you that you're going to be absolutely ecstatic about the SharkBite ProLock products. They're so much easier to use, especially if you have to remove one from a pipe. In the old system, you needed the special curved tool to remove it and even then it took some effort. With the ProLock, you just twist, press and it releases. Like regular SharkBite, these work with a variety of pipes including cpvc (pvc requires a special transition adapter). I never figured they could improve the SharkBite products, but boy, was I wrong!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, High Quality

          I'd give the 6 if I could to the SHARKBITE PROLOCK 3/8 IN. PUSH-TO-CONNECT PLASTIC COUPLING FITTING. The PROLOCK makes it so easy to connect pipes together and equally easy to take them apart. You don't need a special tool to separate the pipes with the PROLOCK system. Just twist and pull apart. This makes it very convenient when you are working in a tight space like under a sink (which it seems to always be with me).

          Like all SHARKBITE products, the SHARKBITE PROLOCK 1 IN. PUSH-TO-CONNECT X FIP PLASTIC/BRASS ADAPTER FITTING is a dependable, easy to use pipe connection system. With a female fitting on one end and a "push-to-connect" on the other, it's a breeze to use and works on different types of pipe. I've used SHARKBITE products for several years and have never had a leak in them!

          The LIBERTY DRUM 3-3/4 IN. (96MM) MATTE BLACK DRAWER PULLS are nice, unobtrusive pulls that work well in an environment where glitter is not wanted. They don't stand out but they look beautiful. They can be used to replace other regular sized two screw drawer pulls without having to re-drill holes. They are well made and I expect they will outlast me.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Stylish

          Answer: 
          It's either/or. If it's set dusk to dawn, it will remain on after dusk so ther is no need for motion sensing.
