          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 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Reducing Coupling 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 & PEX pipe. Color: Black.

          Almost perfect. I've been using SharkBite for ten years and this is version 2.0 as far as I'm concerned. Still room for some improvement, but makes the job so much easier. No more crimping tool or worrying if you can get enough leverage in a small space to pinch it closed, just press in and twist to lock. I would like to see the arrows marked in a different color so they are easily visible if locked or not. I used a paint pen on mine to use as an example. Very easy to switch to different sizes with the adapters and to create manifolds by adding several TEE's together. I would recommend a removal tool to help keep the insert pressed in as otherwise using your fingers to constantly work around Read More

Very easy to switch to different sizes with the adapters and to create manifolds by adding several TEE's together. I would recommend a removal tool to help keep the insert pressed in as otherwise using your fingers to constantly work around the fitting to pull it back in increments can be a bit tough unless you have amazing finger strength. It can be done, but takes forever... The twist locks did not really click for me, another reason I would like the arrows colored for visibility. The lock snugs the color against the ring so it cannot be pushed in (see pictures). Like I said, almost perfect, and I'll pay a bit extra for these just for the ability to undo the project and start over if something changes. My last PEX project was installing a whole home water softener and filter. I could have done the project in half the time if these had been available. I'll be keeping several of these in my plumbing kit and getting rid of my collection of crimp rings and PEX pliers. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use
          Cons: lock status hard to see

          From Liberty, the Mandara drawer pull is a simple design with subtle reflections from the glamorous art deco period. The softened square edges add a contemporary edge to your room. Also available in coordinating bath accessories and bathroom faucet.
