Does the ring on the outside spin or something? if that's the problem and you don't want to put it back on something like a vise or large c-clam could be used to crush the ring until it bit into the rest of the fitting and could then be loosened that way.

Also that link says it's a left handed thread which means righty loosely.

Tldr: getting it off shouldn't be too hard if you don't mind breaking it. Murph's tool was designed to not damage the fitting.

I'm not afraid at all of damaging it. Just not used to operating that way, haha.

From when I was messing with it the outside didn't budge - or was stuck.

I'll go out and mess with it more after work tomorrow.

Just make sure it's a screw in kind and not soldered or something dumb like that
