    I'm getting ready to finish one of the bathrooms in the cabin and I'm trying to figure out how to make the shut offs look good and install an escutcheon, but nothing seems to look right.

    I've used the Siouxchief StrongArm system (Link) to run the Pex and I have stainless crimp shutoffs. I just can't figure what sort of escutcheon or flange to use at the wall. Any suggestions?

    In hindsight I probably would have used a copper stub out, but the wall is closed up so that ship has sailed.

    have you tried a standard one, maybe one for 3/4" copper?. I don't know offhand if pex has the same outside diameter, but even an escutcheon that's a little big might do the job okay

    I would think a regular escutcheon would work being those shark bite fittings work for copper and PEX?

    I wound up using a regular escutcheon and using a "chrome" spray paint to cover the 1/2" of exposed blue pex and it looks pretty damn good (if I do say so myself).
