Answer This Question

A:  plumbing department

by|Dec 9, 2016

A:  in the irrigation section

by|May 17, 2017

    A:  The Plumbing aisle near the in-ground water meter housing boxes

    by|Jun 27, 2017

      A:  Do you see the big orange button that says "Add to Cart"? If you look below that it tells you what isle it is in. You may need to specify your store on this website. Will be a different isle in most stores. mine says: In Stock At Your Selected Store Jantzen Beach #4007 Portland, OR 97217 Change Pick Up Store 25 In Stock Aisle 15, Bay 021

        A:  All Home Depot items used to have a "location in store" reference right next to the Add to Cart button which would tell the customer the isle and shelf location of the product within the sore. It was a great idea and real time saver. Unfortunately, it appears they have decided to do away with this convenience. What a shame.

          Q:will this key fit down a 1 inch galvanized pipe

          Answer This Question

          A:  Possibly

          by|Jul 11, 2017

          A:  No, I don't believe it would because the dimensions of the key end is 1"X1-1/16".

          by|Jun 27, 2017

            A:  Very close, probably not.

            by|Oct 26, 2016

              A:  pop, it will fit, but should you choose to do so, proceed carefully. Galvanized pipe has an interior diameter of 1.049" wide, while the curb key base's outside width is 1" (it would be a very close fit).

              by|Oct 20, 2015

                A:  NOPE, 1 " PIPE ID TOO SMALL.

                A:  It depends, if the valve handle is less than 6/8" wide it should fit. It is ALMOST 3/4" wide...I am pretty certain this is made to fit the majority of water shut off valves for residential units.

                  A:  yes it is used to turn the valve on the street side of the water meter

                  by|May 17, 2017

                    A:  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.

                    A:  Yes that is what it is made for. It't top T is used to pull up the street water cover, then use the wrench end to turn on or off the water to your home.

                        A:  In most instances, yes. It depends on the type of valve your municipality has installed.

                          A:  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.

                            A:  The Curb Key from Home Depot is designed to fit the standard curbside bronze shutoff valve provided by most water utilities. If it should not fit, return it to Home Depot for refund.

                              This is a great deal.  The product is solidly built and affordably priced.  I use it bi-annually to change the direction of the diverter valve on my septic drain field.  It performs exceptionally well for this task.  This product will last a lifetime.  I have never had an issue with its performance and I have no complaints with the purchase.  Definitely recommended for similar applications.
