I had a similar problem but not with the pex line My valve on the toilet was leaking and needed to be replaced. What I did so that I could continue checking the rest of the water lines was to disconnect the line at the toilet valve and put a 1/2 inch plug in the connector fitting. I had a few on hand from when I had my pop-up. They do come in handy and may help you get through an emergency. Also like your idea about adding shutoff valves.

After thinking it over I went with the SS pinch clamps (which is what's there now) and as Cosmic suggested brass fittings and valves.
I picked up a used Sharbite pinch tool on ebay and a bag of SS pinch rings at Home Depot.

I now have a shut off valve behind the toilet, for each sink, hot and cold.

Looks and works like a charm. I actually like the brass lever shut off at the toilet as I throttle it back a bit to reduce the water flow so as not to splash out around the rim.

Thanks again everyone!
