This is a commercial water key. It turns on any water faucet without a handle like those found on commercial properties or at some d-bags house who has removed the handle. It also opens the enclosure boxes that protect the faucet from tampering and will turn on the underground main some homes
. Have a drink on me guys

I'm still fairly infuriated whenever I think about people taking handles off of water spigots to deny ANYONE access to water. That's like trying to deny someone access to oxygen. I think there's a name for that. Oh yeah, MURDER.

Is "water key" the proper name for it? Tried searching for one on Menards and Home Depot websites. Closest I found was a "sillcock key" - not sure if it's the same thing.

Could you just use a multi-tool instead? I feel like I could get my pliers in there and twist it, but I've never tried.

yes this is the proper term for this tool. if you walk into a hardware store tell them your looking for one of these, they'll show you where they are. costs about $2.50+ depending on how many heads it has.

You can swoop these pretty easy from home depot gardening section. They just leave them on the spouts. They have tons extra so they wont miss it if you take it. My friend used to work there and she took hers from there too. Haha

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
