Turn worn valve nuts with Valve Key Sockets
Featured Product from Lowell Corporation
Lowell is proud to offer a tool for gripping and turning corroded or damaged two inch square valve operating nuts. When attached to a standard valve key (purchased separately), the Valve Key Socket easily and securely grip valve nuts that may have become rounded or corroded. Each kit contains small, medium and large sockets, as well as the hardware for connecting each socket to a valve key. The sockets are made of zinc-plated, hardened steel and are high-visibility yellow to help locate them in low light conditions. A durable carrying case houses all components.
Operation is simple. A worker attaches the correct socket to a valve key with the screw and attachment plate included in the kit. Once the socket is positioned onto the valve nut, the worker firmly hammers the top of the valve key to force the socket onto the nut and secure it. The worker can then open, or close the valve as normal.
