What is it? a garden hose connector

What does it claim?  that you can connect a garden hose and nozzle or other water fixtures in just seconds, so you can stop twisting, turning and getting soaked

Who tested it?  Norfolk resident Vince Pilato

What Are The Instructions? There are two main pieces that make up Snap 2 0.  These two pieces when snapped together make the connection.    So you need to install connector piece "A" by screwing it onto a faucet, spigot, or hose.  Then install connector piece "B" by screwing onto a hose, sprinkler, or any watering tool of your choice.  Now you can slide the two connectors and when you hear them "snap together" they are locked and in place.  Now it's ready for use.  To detach connectors, simply hold them so that the arrows are facing you and pull connector "B"  toward you. 

It's very important to note that you need to make sure the water is turned off before you detach the two connector pieces.  The makers of Snap 2 0 say that it is only for outdoor use with cold water.  It should not be used with hot water. 

Did it work? Pilato was not to impressed with Snap 2 0.  While he liked that he could easily attach his water hose and nozzle with just one snap.  He did not like the fact that he had to keep going back and forth to turn the water on and off before he could make the connection.  And when he didn't turn the water off and tried to connect or disconnect the hose and nozzle with Snap 2 0 he got soaked!

Cost/Availability? You can purchase Snap 2 0 at Walmart for $9.88 and that includes a bonus Adjustable Water Pressure Nozzle.
