Great for Tight Space / Limited Access applications
By DIY (from UP, Michigan) on 10/9/2014
This tool works great and is well worth the price, even for placing a limited number of connections. One of the benefits of the cinch type clamp is that the connection can be made with limited access to only a portion of the fitting. I used this to install 1" PEX to an outdoor woodstove for which there were 8 lines running to and from the stove through a 24" x 5" opening, resulting relatively tightly nested arrangement for which most of the tubing was butted up against the insulation of the stove - no room for a crimp die around the entire fitting. The cinch clamp worked like a charm, thanks to this tool which is well engineered and solidly constructed. Many thanks to PEX Universe for making it available.

THIS is the tool your looking for
By Ed (from Texas) on 12/1/2015
Say goodby to improperly crimped PEX connections. With other tools you never really know if it's going to leak until you turn on the water. Please, START with this tool instead of wasting your time/money with the cheaper stuff.

The PEX Connection Champ
By David B. (from Effort, PA) on 8/12/2013
This guy really makes connecting Pex a joy. The fact that it can be operated with one hand is very important, because you frequently need your other hand to hold the Pex pipe tight against the fitting. Also, when it comes to spacing the clamp 1/8" to 1/4" away from the end of the fitting, you can tighten the tool just to the point where it holds the clamp but you can still adjust the placement of the clamp on the pipe and then tighten it all the way. I never previously used any pex clamping/crimping tools, but every connection I made with this tool was flawless. I wouldn't think of using anything else.

Great tool.. used it a few times. NICE to be able to crimp with one hand and align with the other. It's great that it comes with a pouch and calibration tools.

Great price Works great
By Retired (from Orlando Florida) on 8/8/2011
The tool works great. Even came with extra batteries and a case. So many ways to connect Pex pipe with all the new fittings. Can't make up my mind which one to choose.

The only way to pex - Spend the extra
By Heavyhaul (from Roaring Spring,PA) on 1/18/2012
I do not own this particular brand. Different color handles, construction looks exactly the same. The other style tool is quite cumbersome to use. You need two hand, lots of room, and alot of strength and luck to use at arms length on 3/4 clamps. This tool requires less than half the space, 1 hand(till possible last click), and much easier to keep in position while clamping.

If you look at the main product picture, you'll see a small rectangular metal bar. This is the gauge and it is used to check the jaw opening of the tool. The hex key is used for adjusting the tool if needed. Both fit into a holster as can be seen on one of the pictures.

How do you remove a clamp? Is there a special tool just like the crimp tool? Thanks.
Read 1 answer
There is no special tool for removing stainless steel PEX cinch clamps. Wire cutters (snips) are used to cut off the cinch head. The remaining portion of the clamp can be removed with a flat tip screwdriver and or pliers.

Which type of ring is better stainless steel or copper
Read 1 answer
2 of 2 people found this answer helpful.
PEX crimp tools are used in combination with PEX copper crimp rings. PEX clamp tools are used in combination with stainless steel PEX clamps. Choosing one connection method over the other is mostly a matter of personal preference. Crimp method is more time proven and mistake-proof, but will require separate tool for each tubing size or a tool with interchangeable jaws, such as PXT3201/02/03 crimp tool kits. Clamp or cinch method is much quicker, more convenient and uses only one tool for all tubing sizes, however it lacks the ability to check connections for accuracy and has been in use less time than the crimp method.
