Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looks nice but not practical Bought this to turn off water main shutoff. Does not work. My shutoff main curb key is 5/16"x1". This wrench is a little too big for the key and it literally turns around without getting a good grip. Be aware that the neck is wide. If your curb key sits too close to the edge of the meter box, you may not have enough clearance to turn the valve. Try it on my gas main valve, neither does it fit. It's too bulky, not enough clearance. End up returning it to homedepot. Bought the other water shutoff wrench with longer stem and tee handle. Even though the wrench opening is a standard 3/4", it actually works on a 5/16" key. The main shutoff is very tight and I had to give it a good crank. January 9, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wrong sizes on every feature This is definitely a well made tool considering its 10 dollar cost. The problem is that the slots for shutting off the water and gas are way too large to be of much use. My water shut off and gas shut off valves require a 3/8 slot or cut out in order to fit over the metal rail, but this tool has 3/4 inch slots...twice the appropriate size. In addition, I could not use the hook or arrow device on the horizontal section to lift the heavy water main cover off of its seat, despite what the directions stated. I returned it and made my own tool out of plumbing pipe parts that works great. I screwed in two 1/2 wide by 3 inch long pipe nipples into a 1/2 inch tee connector to form the turning handle. Then I screwed in an 8 long pipe to form the vertical section. I finished by screwing on a 1/2 to 3/4 inch reducer piece and hack sawed a few cuts in the wide end to form the slot. I then removed the remaining material with a miniature grinding wheel on a dremel tool and then squared it off with a hand file. Voila, it worked perfectly! Cost about $8.00 in pipe parts, cheaper than the store tool and better. If you don’t have the desire or ability to grind the slot, you could always bring the piece to a machine shop and have them do it. This tool will last a lifetime and should be kept handy at all times in case an emergency requires water or gas shut-off. May 17, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Waiting To Use It The tool seems to meet the requirement for water and gas shutoffs but, fortunately, I have not had the opportunity to use the tool hence just three stars. Will update the rating after first use. I will say that the tool seems to be very robust. February 11, 2014
