About This Product

Rain Bird PTC1 Spray Head Pull-Up Tool for Pop-Up Sprinklers. Finally a tool that simplifies and speeds-up maintenance of pop-up lawn sprinklers. Easy to use tool pulls pop-up sprinkler stem upwards and prevents it from retracting while you work on maintenance or replacement of spray nozzles. Ever noticed how difficult it is to change or install nozzles and how easily a wet stem can quickly disappear back into the spray body. Once the stem accidentally slips and retracts back into the sprinkler body, you have no option but to completely disassemble the spray head to reattach the nozzle. That frustrating and time-consuming exercise is completely eliminated with this handy tool. Easy to use instructions: (1) insert flanged flat metal tips into nozzle assembly, squeeze handles and lift to pull stem up and out of sprinkler body (2) now hold stem by hand and squeeze handles to open jaws (3) position jaws around stem (4) release handles and tool firmly holds stem in a fully extended position. You're now free to work with both hands without worry of stem retracting back into spray body. Tool is adjustable for width of opening by simply tightening or loosening screw on handle by hand. Works with all brands of pop-up irrigation sprinklers. Corrosion-resistant metal with comfortable vinyl handle covering. Rain Bird The Intelligent Use of Water.

    Q:will this device work with the larger diameter 5000 series units?

    Answer This Question

    A:  No, it is designed for any pop up spray.

    by|May 4, 2023

      A:  No I made the same mistake it’s only for the smaller size.

      by|Jul 16, 2020

      A:  I used it on a Tora popup which has about a 1" diameter popup. I don't believe that it will open up enough for the wider diameters

      by|May 5, 2023

      A:  Not sure. I do not think so.

      by|Aug 5, 2020

      A:  The 5000 series are rotors. This tool does not open wide enough for rotors. It is only for non-rotor pop-up sprinklers.

      Q:I'm trying to replace a nozzle that has popped off the actual pop up shaft.
      by|May 17, 2017

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes.... it will make the job much easier.

      by|May 4, 2023

        A:  If it is missing I would say no because there is nothing to grap onto. If its broken, it would depend on how much of the nozzle is left for the tool to grap

        by|Sep 9, 2022

        A:  Probably not. You'll either have to unscrew the top housing (cap) to thread new nozzle onto the riser ( Note: when unscrewing cap be sure NOT to unscrew the body from the inlet) or dig the whole thing up and replace entire unit.

        A:  It probably wouldn't be of much help to pull up the shaft, but once you get the shaft pulled up, it will perform its second function, to clip onto the shaft to keep it from springing back into the body of the sprinkler. It's designed to grab onto the nozzle.

          A:  This tool can be used to pull up the shaft of the sprinkler. Then you would be able to grab it with your hand and clamp the tool around the base to hold it while you screw a nozzle onto the top. If the threads are damaged this will not be able to fix that issue though.

            Q:Will this tool work to pull up Rainbird rotor popup stem. Particularly the 42SA+???

            Answer This Question

            A:  It seems to be universally adaptable to most popup heads

            by|May 4, 2023

              A:  Yes. I used it on the 32sa yesterday. So, it works on the 42sa as well.

              by|Oct 14, 2022

                A:  I use rainbird sprinklers and it works on those. However, I don't know if they are the 42SA you mentioned

                by|May 4, 2023

                A:  yes and very well

                by|May 4, 2023

                  A:  not really.

                  Much easier to hold the sprinkler up while changing sprinkler heads!

                  This is a must have tool for working on your home irrigation systems. Before I bought this I would need to hold the pop sprinkler with one hand while attempting to clean out the head with the other hand. This tool holds the pop up sprinkler freeing up both hands to work on the head.

                  Love it. Only issue is that there is no hook to pull sprinkler heads from sprinkler body. Instead, have to use a flat head screwdriver to get it started.
