Years and years ago -- at least 6, and probably quite a few more -- I picked up two of these sets (the auto shut-off version) at my local Orchard Supply Hardware ("OSH") and permanently installed them on our garden hose and two sprayers. Over those years, they served us without a problem.

We're in a different house now, with a few more garden hoses and sprayers and sprinklers, so needed to increase the number of quick connection fittings. But a visit to OSH revealed that they're no longer carrying this product. Not recalling the "Orbit" brand name, I ordered a box full of well-reviewed Gilmour Brass Quick Connectors from Amazon, planning to "start over" and trusting the good Bosch Tool name (Gilmour's parent company). Too bad those Gilmour connections were horrible, with a poor seal design and loose fitting rubber grips. They went back to Amazon, and I chose instead these Orbit quick connects, due to their similar appearance to the ones I already owned.

So in a nutshell:
+ The rubber grips are hearty, and tightly affixed to the brass. My old ones have never come loose.
+ The internal seal design uses a dedicated O-ring for sealing the quick-connect, a key element the Gilmour fittings lack.
+ These can be tightened down with wrench and made "permanent" to hoses, faucets and attachments without affecting usability. Yes, this is an expected attribute not normally worth mentioning, except that I was unable to do it with the Gilmour fittings without making it impossible to actually use the quick connect / disconnect feature.

I bought two of these. The description makes it sound exactly like the Quick Connect Set #58285, but that is because it is the wrong description. This set does not automatically stop water flow when disconnected. The other one does. It's ok because ultimately it is more useful for me to have it not stop water flow when disconnected so I can use the hose without an attachment. I informed Amazon of the error on the description, but they would not fix it because the Orbit website has the same error. I then called Orbit and they said they would fix the site, but it is still up there as of 5/6/2010.

In any case it is a good product. It is solid brass with the exception of rubber grips which I like because all brass can be difficult to use when it is wet and cold.

Update 5/29/16 For the best possible performance without leaking get the Gilmour 09QCMGT Green Thumb Brass Male Connector for Hose along with the Orbit Female Quick Connect.

(Please see update at bottom) I bought two of these along with ordering several more brass male hose connects so I could quickly change different sprinklers, nozzles, pressure washers etc. I put the two brass female quick connects on the end of each of the two hoses my house has and the brass male hose connects on all of the sprinklers, jet nozzles, etc.

Some of the sprinklers, nozzles etc it worked perfect but for others it would leak like crazy. It was driving me nuts! I used all new rubber washers and teflon tape but it still would not stop the leaks! I was about to give up when I found a couple of older Gilmour male hose connects laying around that were brass colored aluminum. I thought "what the heck" and screwed one into a jet nozzle that leaked with the Orbit brass male hose connect. Eureka it worked! That's right, the metal aluminum Gilmour male hose connect with the Orbit female brass quick connect stopped all of the leaks I was struggling with! The only thing with the Gilmour male connect is that the tightening rubber ring around it cannot be tightened as much as the Orbit before it slips, unless you use vice grips right on the metal like I did.

So for those of you thinking of going to this quick connect system this is what I suggest you try:

1. Order one Orbit Brass Hose Quick Connect Set 58117 (NO auto shut off feature-I hate those)

2. Go to Lowes and buy one Gilmour metal male hose connect. (Probably aluminum though looks brass colored). It should be less than $3. (Don't buy the set, JUST the one male hose connect for now).

The older version of this used to have a machined grove and an o-ring as it's seal. Now it uses a stepped washer that seats against the end of the male piece. If you really tighten the female end it deforms the stepped washer. The tried & true o-ring was so much better than this new design. Not worth sending back, they will sit in a bin in the garage. "Yardworks" brand still uses the o-ring.

Other reviewers have commented that the automatic water shutoff doesn't (always) work. Here's why: Take a female end (eg that you put onto the hose and want to auto shutoff) in your hand (take it off the hose first ;-) and give it a little shake. The moving part is what allows water through when you push the male coupling in, and which also causes the water to shut off (if it's working) when the male coupling is removed. Look at the end that screws onto the hose (not the end the male part goes into) and push it open with you finger from the other side, as would the male part if you had pushed it in. You see the flat round part you just pushed open? Immediately behind the flat part should be a rubber o-ring gasket. If yours is leaking, that o-ring is either broken, fraying, or missing (because it broke off).
This problem is persistent in these brass female quick connects, manufactured in China and sold under several brands (such as Orbit). Call Orbit and politely request a warranty replacement, as these are warranted for six years. They may send you one (or more, if you bought more).
I'd give this product a 5 if it worked all the time, but sadly . . .
