Answer: 
This tool is for the shutoff valve right next to the water meter. There usually a separate shutoff valve on the pipe going into your house. You need to look at the water meter to see if the tool match your valve. I would expect your local home depot sell a curb key that work for the houses in the area.

Answer: 
This wrench fits exactly a 5/8's inch NUT. You do not use a tool in the HOLES, you only ALLIGN the holes by using the tool on the NUT.
You stack (like a pancake) or spread the holes (like wings) which turns on or off the water.

Answer: 
This is typically used with the main shutoff valve for your sprinklers. The fitting used from the municipality (which would shut off your sprinklers and home water) might be a different shape.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Much more convenient that the wrench ! Although I could get down on the gourd and shut the water on and off, this tool is much more convenient. For the price, it was totally worth it even if its not a tool I use often. Very useful in an older house where sometimes I need to shut the water off late at night. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 28 IN. STEEL CURB KEY Its was very easy to use, its a highly recommended. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good tool for the job Very sturdy and easy to use. Made the facet swap easy when having to turn of the main water valve. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job The tool worked fine. It is clearly of inferior quality and I fear that it could break if used on a stubborn valve but i am sure that Home Depot would stand behind the product. That was my reason for going ahead with the purchase. It is also because I do not expect to use this more than once per year if that frequently. June 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It works, within limits. Perhaps the gap at the end of the tool is meant to be as large as it is, but I found that it tended to slip off the top of the shutoff valve unless 100% squarely positioned. The worst part of my experience was that, having ordered and paid for it on line, I spent 20 minutes or more waiting for Home Depot's personnel to be able to hand it over to me! I could have walked the store myself to obtain it and check out, all within a couple of minutes! April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps you off your knees The older I get and the less limber to get up from my knees the more I wanted one of these. Worth every penny! Good quality at a good price. April 26, 2016
