How do you get the quick connect to disconnect on a Price Pfister kitchen faucet (type that has a brass cylinder on the end of the hose that "snaps" into a larger brass housing; you can see a plastic insert at the base of the brass cylinder)? There are two: one to the faucet and one to the sprayer. I've tried everything I can think of with no success. I read on a Delta web site that you squeeze the plastic which apparently had slits, but the Price Pfister doesn't have such slits and this didn't work. Please help, I have granit installers coming in the morning and I can't get the faucet out?

I don't understand what a "quick disconnect" is If you're attempting to remove the faucet then shut the water off at the stops and get underthe cabinet with a basin wrench, (see image) or adjustable wrench and first unscrew the supply lines and then remove the retaining nuts securing the valve body and pull up. Good luck, Tom

We are are experiencing the same situation. Except, our granite is in and I don't want to purchase a new faucet unless I have to. Our Price Pfister on the old sink is stuck and it is the darn quick connect. We still had the directions and it still isn't working. What did you end up doing?

Please, Post model of your faucet. Or Photo. PP has several different quick disconnects on market.

Does it look like this ? If positive, than there is a U shape pin in upper slot. Take needle nose pliers and pull it in horizontal motion to the side.

If negative, than take a flash light, lay on your back under the sink and closely inspect the connection. It is very simple system that snaps together. Yes, PP has one similar to Delta but PP uses it on lavatory faucets. There, you have to squeeze it and pull down. However, the granite people are very familiar with faucet removal. They could give you a hand...

Thanks for responding.

It is a Parisa 534 single lever. It does not look like the picture you attached.

Yes, it is like Delta system: if I am not mistaken you squeeze it with tip of your fingers inward and pull down.

The brass piece or the plastic ring that sits above it? Should it take a lot of muscle or remove easily? Is there anything that can be done if it is stuck? I believe we have been trying to remove it that way. Would you recommend we cut it out and put on a new connector?

You squeeze plastic into brass...
Take a flash light, get under the sink and observe the connection.
You should be able to figure out how it snaps together - and loosens

Sorry, w/o a photo it is hard to give you concrete advise other than guess. Any way you could post a snap-shot of it ?

Thanks again. We must of damaged it trying to remove it because that method did not work. We ended up saw it off and installing a new connector. Works fine.

Ooops... sorry about that. Please, inspect the old one. See how it functions . This knowledge may be handy next time...

Was anyone able to answer this short of cutting off the connection? I have the same situation trying to replace the spray nozzle assembly - the plastic insert does not "squeeze" or move up or down - I am relunctant to apply force with a pliers for fear of breaking it.

Hi Mortimorj...

If this is not the clipped kind of quick disconnect then most likely it will be the push type disconnect. Here, you need to push down on the gray upper ring while kind of pushing up on the connector and then once you confirm you have pushed down on upper/inner ring then you should be able to just pull quick disconnect off. It is a bit tricky to get it just right.

Does yours have ring like in my pic. Below?

Let me know... MARK

And for people that might read this in the future.. the other kind is a quick disconnect type with clips.. see picture below:

Push up the Diverter Tee (Quick Connect) and hold down the grey inner plastic collar as you firmly pull out the hose, pipe, etc.

On Price Pfister Website, see Video on "how to remove a sprayer hose connection for the Price Pfister"

I am having the same problem... here is a picture of the quick disconnect: http://picasaweb.google.com/cinepost/OnTheRoad#5557260539487334722

You either pull down the plastic ring, or push in the plastic ring to release the connector. I wish someone had a video on Youtube as to how to do this... maybe I will do it... not.

Let's get Price Pfister involved!

Take off the outer clips (the ones on the hoses - they have long "ears" but are essentially C-clips) & then break off the tabs on the inner ones (the ones on the brass fittings), you can then remove the hose. You will have to get new inner clips for the brass fittings; they are smaller versions of the ones on the hoses.
