Securing Sharkbite Angle Valve


I have a couple of Sharkbite angle shut-off valves I plan to install to supply water to a new utility sink in the basement. I am tapping in to the washer water lines and I plan to run pex to the shuf-off valves. I attached a pic. What would be the best way to secure these valves to the wall? As you can see there are no mounting brackets to secure them. I looked all over the hardware store and on Sharkbite's website for a mounting bracket but no luck. Should I just get a bracket large enough to go around the valve and secure it that way? Thanks for the help.

Back up and show us what it is your trying to tie into.
Are these lines inside a finished wall?

Research conduit strap clamp, or tubing clamp.

A simple way is to put 2x? bock in the wall and drill it where you want the stub outs. Then use these pound in anchors to hold the pipe in place- drill 13/8" holes for these anchors. You should find them at the box store of your choice

Why do you need it secure? Sharkbites are made to turn by design. If the turning does not cause any sort of malfunction, dont bother with it. That aside, if you need to secure it, you can try plumbing strap, or hose clamps, or zip ties or baling wire if you need something more heavy duty.

Or 2 shim 2X4 blocks, one on top & bottom screwed into the wall.

I mean, what you have to secure it to & how "pretty" you want it will kinda determine what you can use to secure it but there is many ways.

Thanks everyone. Hick, I thought about just leaving the valves hanging by the pex line, but didn't think this would be a good idea. These will be on the outside of a concrete basement wall. Thanks for all the replies. I'll look at the conduit straps mentioned.

Pex to NPT drop ear (for next time). Use a valve that threads directly on or use a chrome nipple and chrome valve for interior finish plumbing.

On concrete walls I would mount these drop ears on a treated board that was fastened to the wall.

Upstairs under the sinks, mount just behind the drywall and use a chrome nipple and valve

Concrete wall. Well, a concrete drill bit, concrete screws & a treated board (probably a 2X4 or 2X6) & plumbing strap would be the easiest/cheapest option. You could skip the treated board but I wouldn't suggest it.
