    They're to add a tee for a riser to an existing line without cutting the line. You clean, sand, prime, and glue the tee onto the line, then once the glue is set, you drill a hole into the pipe and add the riser to the threaded end of the saddle tee.

    Since the Tees are originally used to create a "tap" from the pipe, I wouldn't expect them to be able to handle repeated connect/disconnect.
    However, they appear to be fine in the photos. Have you had many of them break? How often do you connect/disconnect?

    I have been using these for probably 10 years now for various things. I bet I've snapped and unsnapped some of these a 100 times without issue. I love them! To be fair, the ones i use are 3/4" to either a 1/2" or 3/4" pipe thread.

    Thanks Louie. I've been looking for something like this (I have the HC Lexan clips in the test at this time). If they can be put up and taken down often, then I'll jump on them.

    I think I've only broken 1 out of a few hundred that I use. I forget how many years since I switched from the old method. Probably 4 now. Mine are painted which helps a bit with the UV degradation. I put my frames out before Halloween. Then adjust placement between Halloween and Christmas and then take them down towards the end of the winter when the weather starts to get nicer. They're out for a good 6 months per year and get about two snap/unsnap cycles per year.

    Thanks Jon. As usually, logic and practice don't always coincide, hence the question. Good to know.
