I was not sure what to expect when I ordered these. My local stores do not carry this style of manifold (with the built in valves). They appear quite well made and sturdy. Pressured up the mainfold(s) with no leaks, valves all work as expected.

I bought the manifold with open ends by mistake. I would like to just close off one end. What's a good way to do this, and will it affect the performance of the manifold? I bought two of these, one for cold, and one for hot, and would like to close one end of each. Thanks very much in advance, Hank.
