Very Convenient

Pros: Hand-tightening the compression nuts wasn't enough and using an adjustable wrench was awkward and sometimes scratched the plastic. The manabloc wrench allowed for the perfect torque and quick installation.

Pros: Hand-tightening the compression nuts wasn't enough and using an adjustable wrench was awkward and sometimes scratched the plastic. The manabloc wrench allowed for the perfect torque and quick installation.

Cons: This is a very specialized tool. Once the manabloc is installed, it's going to sit on a shelf for a long time until there's a problem with a line or you add another water fixture.

I think it's a good idea to have a wrench like this. A regular hex wrench probably won't work. I haven't tried it. Those nuts on the Manabloc are some kind of plastik. It's sturdy, but not as bronze.
My problem with it is its surface is not smooth. It's rough almost like a wood file. Perhaps it's done so it would grip the plastik better. But it makesi t very hard to slide this wrench on the nut and then slide it off. Also it scratches the nuts in the process.
And the groves in the wrench are not a perfect fit for the shape of the nuts, so it's a struggle to slide it on every time. Meybe it works better with other manifolds, but not mine.

This was good to have for installing compression nuts on my Manabloc manifold that I purchased from Supply House. Also wanted to say Supply House is great for lightning fast ground delivery to my location and great customer service for any returns. They will have my future business.

Comments about Manabloc Wrench For Compression Lock-in Nuts:

You can tighten the nuts on the manifold without this, but they are a soft plastic and you need to work hard not to damage them. Ordered this along with some additional pex connectors and the final six manifold connections were quick and easy. Its a little expensive for a single-use wrench, but worth it for the time and effort saved.

      A:

      Please understand, I am no longer allowed to purchase from SupplyHouse. I
      live in Canada. However, this question is fraught with problems that are
      not evident. Firstly, this is not a wrench in the classical form of a
      wrench. For the few dollars it costs, using something else will only cause
      you tons of grief.
      The 'wrench' is intended to tighten plastic connectors at the manabloc end
      of a pex tube. The size of the wrench is not the problem. The problem is
      the spacing between the connectors on the manabloc. Using any other device
      could put too much pressure on the plastic and damage it, leaving you with
      a lifetime of drips. Don't be cheap, buy the wrench. I also recommend that
      you purchase extra 'keys' for shutting off the water on each branch. Nail
      one to the wall next to the manabloc and tie a second one to it. Inevitably
      one will be lost.
      Good Luck and enjoy.

      A:

      You tighten the nuts until they are just tight, then tweak it a little bit more. You gauge it by appearance- the white inner sleeve with stick out about 1/16 or 1/8 of an inch. That's how you know it's tight enough and properly seated. Do not over tighten.
