Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homeownershandyman Cheap cost, cheap wrench, but perfect for its job
Other's write the wrench did not fit in their area, I find that ..... interesting.
I am in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and I put these onto my rental homes here. Hey, it's a cheap emergency gas valve wrench, not a precision tool. Who or why would anyone care if it's lose, you want it to work once, just once, in the middle of a snow storm and in the dark without a flashlight, right? So, you want it to be lose.
It works, it's cheap, made of steel, and arrives at your store fast. What more could you ask for? Buy it, try it for fit, then try to turn your valve just a little to make sure your valve is not stuck (lots of them are, then call the gas co.) After that, cable-tie it, wire it, chain it whatever, but just leave it and forget it.
Dimensions: 10" long x 1-1/2" wide. Two holes: one, 3/4" x 1-3/8", and the other, 1/2" x 1-3/8"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by westcoast gas valve size not uniform
I have read several reviews giving POOR reviews on this product, when in fact it's the gas companies inconsistency in using a set size on the shut off valves.
The wrench is designed for a 1/2" and 3/4" shut off valve. 1/2" commonly used for home gas meters and 3/4" for commercial gas meters, but I have come across many home gas meters with 5/8" shut off valves, I am sure this is why some people are saying the wrench won't fit.
My recommendation is DO YOUR HOMEWORK before you buy.
These wrench's work great for what they are designed for and are a great price...everyone should have one attached to their meter.
My only suggestion for the manufacture of the wrench's is to make them 1/2" & 5/8" and forget the 3/4" size.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RHSmith Won't work for gas meters in Southern California
At $4 and change, the price of ignorance did not come high... but this affordable wrench will not work for gas meters in Southern California. Both openings are too big, which means you don't get good purchase on the valve and poor leverage. Best bet still seems to be the old crescent wrench.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Max3 Cheaply made, did not fit
Like another reviewer, for me, this wrench simply did not fit over the valve. Unlike the other reviewer, I chose not to fix the wrench, but to look for a better-made product instead.
I checked it against my neighbor's valves and it didn't fit those either.
This product is meant for emergency use so it should not have to be modified before it can be used and it doesn't even deserve a 2-star (fair) rating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by April Good wrench for the price
The wrench doesn't fit fantastically, which is a bit of a bummer, but we've tied it to our gas valve on the house in case of an emergency.
At least it's sturdy. And it has two different wrench sizes to fit most gas valves.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Striker01 Didn't fit over the valve properly
The width was right for the valves I needed it for but the length is too short and I had to file it to make it work.
