frig water supply line

We bought a new frig with a water dispenser and ice. The guy at Sears said to get a saddle valve kit from a plumbing supply store and do it my self. I'm a little wary on using a saddle valve
any suggestions???
Should I just get my plumber to do it for $100

If you're uncomfortable doing it, $100.00 ain't bad.

I have used a saddle valve, but most people don't like them, because if they leak, now you have a hole in the pipe.

Have you coincided a Tee valve or fitting that would connect to your existing cold water shutoff ?
