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.Read more ›
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.
(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).

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 . . .

These are great. They are the non-shut off version but are solid brass from what I can tell. The set seemed a little pricey so I check my local orange box store and sure enough... Read morePublished 3 days ago by Dennis Kimball
This seems to be of better quality than others I have bought. female connection doesn't get stuck open as easily and releases easier and works with other kinds of male connections.Published 23 days ago by saj2425
Internal rubber O-ring in these provides a better seal than other designs. I'm now replacing these O rings as they eventually wear and begin to leak. Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. Miller
