    Kinko nuts and olives allow you to cut and join copper pipe without the need to solder the joins. They are used in conjunction with brass nipples as a compression fitting. The nut is screwed onto the nipple which compresses the olive and this forms a water tight seal on the pipe.
    I guess the main disadvantage would not compressing the olive enough and slipping out.
    I looked this up and saw the kinko nuts were metal, but I figured it was some sort of recipe because of the olives...lol
