You bet, even Ray Padula Shut It! adapters are better. When flow control is desired at sprinklers that do not feature built-in flow control, or at the joining of two hoses, the Ray Padula Shut It! collection is here to help. Shut It supreme features a heavy-duty metal construction, a metal swivel coupling, a large ergo adjustment lever and best of all a built-in kink-free hose saver eliminating kinking and twisting of the hose at the faucet!
