When a gate valve operating nut is broken off you can be left in
a desperate situation. The Broken Nut Valve Wrench can solve
your problem quickly. First, remove the broken nut from the
valve box using one of the handy wrenches found on page 19
of this catalog. The Broken Nut Valve Wrench is attached to a
T-Handle Wrench with a bolt and nut. The wrench is lowered
in the valve box and the spring loaded pipe wrench jaws are slid
around the stem. When the wrench is turned in the proper direction, the jaw on the wrench will grab the valve stem, allowing
you to open or close the valve while standing at ground level.
The spring loaded jaw is reversible, allowing you to open or close a valve for both open right and open left valves.
