Answer: 
Just move the handles back and forth a little bit at installation. Then leaving them in line with the hose connection they are on. Switch to horizontal and they are closed angled out at 45 degrees. Anywhere in between and it will be partially open.

Yes you can, using your thumb and forefinger turn the black lever to position them in line with the outlet faucet, that would be on. Turn the opposite direction and that would be off.

Answer: 
Hi Lorraine. The black handles attached to the Hoe Y with Shut-Off are large enough to grip with a thumb and finger. Simply turn the handle to the on position by twisting the handle. Thanks for the question!

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked until it didn't I purchased two of these adapters - one for use at the spigot on the back of my house so I can use two hoses, and another at the drip system on my garden to control flow to the different garden zones. The adapter valves seemed good enough in the store. When installed, they did not leak at the threads on any of the connections. However, after only 2 weeks of use, one of them developed a leak around one of the shut off valves. When closed, water would seep out from around the screw inside of the handle on the shut-off. I returned the defective one without replacing it. The other one at the house is still working OK, but we'll see for how long. June 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful product. We hooked up our drip irrigation to the faucet so nice to have the double faucet to enable us to use the water without disconnecting the irrigation system. July 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Works, hasn't leaked, but fixed coupling is a pain. Works fine, hasn't leaked, but fixed coupling is a pain. The inlet coupling (the part you screw on the faucet) is fixed, meaning you have to turn the whole adapter to screw it on tight. I was able to get it tight enough to not leak. But, it limits the use since the direction both ends point is determined by where they happen to end up when it's tight - meaning they were pointing up and down on my faucet. In order to point left and right (where I needed them), I would have to loosen the adapter and it leaked. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good faucet splitter I like the design and it splits the water stream like it should, doesn't leak. I would have liked an adjustable attachment knob. As it is, when I get this adapter tight enough to not leak then the shut-offs are awkward to reach. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Material After Installing, it cracked while connecting hose. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works good so far We have a front spigot that is first in line off the feed to our house, so the pressure is pretty high. We have this splitter on there for the garden hose and the other side for filling up the water can. Works good. no leaks. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine Seems sturdy and will last awhile. We are able to run two hoses at once. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to Use This product was difficult to use once it was attached to the outside spigot. June 28, 2016
