Review or Opinion, "Pull Stop Box"

This is a potentially awesome little device, and I am looking for a bit o' input.
I am trying to find any input what so ever regarding using these devices in a residential building.
I am leaning towards installing them in our bathrooms, as they offer a cleaner look, i.e., "no more nasty escutcheons!"
The biggest negative I see at this point is that it is a relatively new device. I am loathe to install something that hasn't been around for ten years, because what do I do if the device needs to have a valve replaced, but the pull stop box fad has gone away and I can't find the hardware I need? I already have this problem in my shower, which is one BIG reason that I am replacing all things shower replated in my remodel effort.

If anyone has had any experience, good OR bad, I would love to read it! ANd no, these are not going to be purchased today. If I like what I read here, I will be getting them Monday at the absolute earliest.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help! Have an awesome weekend!

Tim

Been away from the business to long. I'd never herd of them. I will say they look nice.

Looks like you can't easily retrofit because you have to open the wall. If you're going to the bare studs it might be a good option if when they fail you don't have to open the wall to replace them.

Curious as to how you will install these in a shower? If they come as Ray's picture denotes, I trust NOTHING plastic to disconnect water. I've never seen these, either, so it would be interesting.

Ray,

I am already ripping everything out of the bathroom, so yeah...I'm already down to the studs in the shower. Only things we are keeping are the toilet, shower rod, and a window!

So not for shower but for sink and toilet? Final opinion is I don't like things that can't be easily replaced if they fail. Opening the wall for me is easy but patching the wall isn't.

IT was a typo--I am currently demoing the shower, so the shower was on my mind! Have no intention of using this for the shower or sinks, I am only considering it for the toilet--where the water shut off is readily visible.

Personally, I like the semi-industrial look of a nicely finished 1/4 turn valve. You can get them in almost any finish (chrome, brass, stainless, satin nickle, bronze, etc) and multiple styles.

THIS is why I come to a forum such as this! At the two major DIY stores here in town, I have seen ONLY the silver/chrome hardware. Since We are doing this project in various shades of tan/beige, I think that some bronze hardware would fit in very nicely, and I never would have known about it!

Very, VERY much appreciated!

Tim
