Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dan well made...5ft is tall though...probably should have bought the 3ft unit
Obviously I know how long 5ft is...guess I thought the meter valve was deeper than it really is. The 3feet unit probably would have been fine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edwaf1 This is built to last
This was built to last a long time. The length is perfect. No bending.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QWERTY Easy reach now
The added length made it much easier to turn the water valve (which is 3ft down the hole).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Light duty tool, not suited for really tight water valves
Needed to shut off the water at my mother's house to replace a sprinkler valve. Not wanting any hassles, I bought the biggest curb key Home Depot had--this one. I brought it to mom's house, tried to shut off the water and just ended up spreading the end of the wrench. Unable to shut off the water and knowing Home Depot didn't have anything bigger, I had to tear into the flower beds to find another shutoff valve.
Knowing the tool was now damaged / used, I didn't even try to return it. It would just look like I abused it or got my one-time use out of the thing.
Bottom line: if you can't open and close the street valve with a crescent wrench, this one probably won't do it either. Save your money.

I needed this product because I had to turn off the water main from the street to stop flooding in the basement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYBob Ability to quickly and safely shutoff your water main valve
If your water main valve is 3 feet deep in an enclosure, this is for you. Previously to reach my shutoff I had to lay on the ground and reach into the chamber with a wrench. Inconvenient, cumbersome, unsafe due to spiders, and time-consuming as I fumbled around to get the wrench on just so. This curb key lets you stand and control the valve on/off without any hassle. It is what professional plumbers use.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by de1974 took it back
This curb key is really made cheaply. It should be 1/2 the price. it didn't fit the meter so I took it back..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anna7 Great quality!
Very handy tool! Well made! The 5 ft length makes it easier to stand while turning the valve instead of bending over. Works great.
