Default Sharkbite fun

Gc decided to not tell us the kitchen was being remodeled too, so we didn't get to extend out the copper at an appropriate time. He decided to install these himself. I only find out at trim time. Copper wouldn't pull out to get them off, HO was a little bit upset i had to cut the back of her new $50k cabinets, not my problem.

I imagine they could not get the sharkbite removal tool behind to pop the caps off.

just cut them with a fine metal blade in a sawsall and twist with a pair of channel locks, would have tried something before cutting " 50 k cabinets" and charged the idiot contractor big time for it..just my .02..

Well, if he kept his cut within the footprint of an escutions, what does it matter that he cut the hole open to fit something around the pipe behind the shark-bite? He never stated he hacked up the cabinet. Merely said he cut it & h/o wasn't happy. H/O should direct their ire to the clown who screwed the pooch in the first place. Chonkie found a solution & got "Chit" done!!
