PEX crimp ring tips


Having a hard time positioning the crimp ring for my PEX fittings. I have only had one fail so far so I guess I'm doing OK. I'm wondering if there is a trick to getting these things to stay put long enough to crimp them.

Position the ring where you want it and give it a crimp with a regular pair of pliers. This will hold in place for you to get your crimper in place without the ring sliding around.
