best one step install for xeri-bug emitter
Put the emitter head ( not the sharp point) in the end of the emitter installation tool. If you are using tubing with a line, line up the sharp point with the color line and push. Voila! an installed emitter in one step. Why would you use anything else?

Got one as part of a kit
I'm obviously not smart enough to see how to work this tool. I have no clue how to use it.

I have other tools that help insert 1/4" tube parts but none that help me remove them. I hope this will do the trick.

I did not like this tool. I use a drill with small bit instead---works better.

does this tool work with the
DIG 06-014 Pressure Compensating 1 GPH Drip Emitter 1/4 in. Barb ?
Ranelle B on Dec 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The answer is yes and no.

Here's the NO part:
Only Rain Bird's Xeri-Bug emitters have a sharp point so they can be installed directly into the supply hose. So you cannot use this tool as Rain Bird intends: to push the emitter into the supply tubing, creating its own hole unless you use Rain Bird emitters.

Here's the YES part.
However, once you've created a hole in the supply hose this tool can be used to install and remove and emitters with 1/4" outputs.

If you want to use DIG or other brand emitters you should probably select an install tool that also punches holes in the supply tubing. On the other hand I highly recommend using Rain Bird emitters (and this tool); the ease of installation is worth it.
do you have a video of this instrument in action?
James H on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I dont have a video but it works well. If you're doin a lot of emitter installations I suggest that you drill out the middle a little...it makes it much faster. I did several hundred emitters in a day.
