How the hex do I go from 1/2 or 3/4 Pex to my 1/4 icemaker


I have 1/2 and 3/4 Pex in the basement and clean runs to the fridge. I can easily get myself where I need to go from 1/2 pex to my 1/4 supply line.

I want to use snakebites so I do not need to buy a crimper. Problem is I cannot find a snakebite to go from 1/2 to pex with something threaded for 1/4.

What am I missing?

I see this and it seems like close to what I need, but snakebite on the 1/2!

Use a compression stop designed for pex

You need a male thread adapter by snake bite fitting, that you can thread into that shutoff valve.
Remember to use teflon tape and pipe dope when you thread the fitting into the shutoff.
