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

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

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
