Would this work as a swivel for a hand held shower head/handle to allow the 1/2" NPT hose to swivel?
A: No the swivel is strictly for when the lines are being attached. Once they are tightened there is no more swivel motion. Please do a search on our site for "live swivel" to get the type of item you are looking for.
