I found that cutting one side then rotating 180 degrees and pressing into the backside of the ring made it easy to remove.

Comments about PEX Ring Cutter (1/2"-1" Copper Crimp Rings):

A time saving tool that will pay for itself quickly if you work with PEX for a living. Similar tools are available at the big box stores for the same $$ but in my opinion, the HydroPex brand is slightly higher in quality.

Comments about PEX Ring Cutter (1/2"-1" Copper Crimp Rings):

It is hard to find a crimping tool kit that can crimp from 3/8" to 1" PEX. Most only go to 3/4" Total cost for this tool is lower than the lesser kits when you include the shipping.

Works perfect for cutting copper rings and also if you squash down on the pex all around the fitting the pex will slide off easily without using a knife

  • PEX Ring Cutter (1/2"-1" Copper Crimp Rings)

    Q:

    Just wondering if the lower jaw on this is too large to fit inside a 3/8 fitting or if leaving 3/8 off the specs was an oversight.

      A:

      Would be rather tight. Bottom jaw measures 11/32" using caliper.

      A:

      I'm pretty sure it wasn't an oversight. I have not tried but I don't
      believe it would. It also only works with brass fittings not plastic ones.

      A:

      I've only used it on 1/2" tube. The jaw may be too small, but I don't
      have any fittings that size to try it on.

  • PEX Ring Cutter (1/2"-1" Copper Crimp Rings)

    Q:

    Does this tool damage the fitting the PEX was cut from? Can the fitting be reused? I'm specifically asking about brass fittings.

      A:

      Fittings (including brass ones) will not be damaged and can be reused. The crimp rings are the only part that will become unusable.

    Q:

    how does this cut a ring off when its on a fitting?
    Asked on 9/5/2010 by Anonymous

      A:

      First, you need to cut the fitting out of the PEX system to remove the ring, only then can the ring be cut. Please follow the directions below on how to use the tool: 1) Use the cutter tool to cut the PEX tubing and remove the fitting from your system. 2) Insert the cutter tool into the fitting and squeeze the handles together to cut the crimp ring band. 3) Use a flathead screwdriver to split the crimp ring. 4) Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to pull the remaining piece off the fitting.

      I'll past along a little trick I figured out concerning the ring cutter that eliminates the screwdriver and needle nose pliers from the ring removal procedure.

      First cut the fitting out of the system as close to the end of the fitting as possible. Second insert the cutter and make a severing cut on the ring. Next, rotate the fitting on the cutter approximately 180 degrees and make another cut. This need not completely sever the ring a second time but it will open the ring enough for the ring to fall off. The last step is to use the cutter as an ‘expander tool’ on the PEX pipe itself by continuing to rotate the fitting and making ‘cuts’ that won’t actually cut through the polypropylene pipe but expands the ID enough after about four to six squeezes that it allows the PEX to literally fall off the fitting.

      This will save you the motion of picking up any additional tools, is actually quite easy and a real time saver if you have a number of fittings to recover.
